Homeschool Students - Transcripts

Liberty University recognizes that transcripts from homeschoolers 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.

  • Homeschool 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", "homeschool addendum" and a signature from the school administrator (usually a parent).
  • The "homeschool addendum" is an acknowledgement by the school administrator that the student has completed the equivalent of a high school education AND and it abides by state standards.
  • Homeschool students must also take the ACT or SAT college entrance exams.

While this format may not be compatible with certain homeschool educational philosophies or modes of instruction, the more closely homeschool 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.
