Home-school Students - Transcripts
Liberty University recognizes that transcripts from home-schoolers may vary widely from one family to another. However, all transcripts must meet certain university standards to facilitate an admission decision and academic placement should the applicant be admitted.
- Home schooling records must indicate the courses completed; the credits, units, or hours associated with each course; and a letter or numerical grade indicating the student's level of performance in that subject area for that year.
- Courses or subjects reflected on the transcript should be organized by grade level (9 through 12) and date.
- To be considered "final", transcripts must include a "Graduation Date", "Home-School Addendum" and a signature from the school administrator (usually a parent).
- Home-schooled students must also take the ACT or SAT standardized college entrance exams.

While this format may not be compatible with certain home-school educational philosophies or modes of instruction, the more closely home-school records resemble a standard transcript, the more easily an admission file can be evaluated and the more likely the applicant can be evaluated for Liberty's academic scholarships.
