Homeschool Transcript Requirements

Request Info

As a homeschooled student, your parent(s) or a primary teacher is responsible for submitting a high school transcript for grades 9 through 12.

Students applying to the University of Miami must produce a transcript which includes course titles, content for each title, and an assessment of performance or grade. Additionally, course descriptions for each class, which include a summary of the course and texts used, must be submitted. Preferably, the courses completed at home are part of a curriculum developed and evaluated by a nationally recognized diploma-granting organization or agency or sponsoring public high school. 

If you have taken classes outside of the home, those courses must be included and labeled on the transcript. An official transcript must be received from that institution.

Ways to produce an official high school transcript:

  • Enrolling under an umbrella school that produces official transcripts
  • Using a service that specializes in transcript creation
  • Joining a homeschool group that produces professional transcripts

Upon graduation, if an official transcript from a state homeschool association or sponsoring public high school is not available, homeschool applicants must submit one of the following documents:

  • A graduation certificate or evaluated transcript from a state-approved agency or official
  • GED exam results
  • Affidavit of High School Completion along with a transcript signed by your primary instructor 

If state law does not require a homeschooled student to obtain a secondary school completion credential, you may submit a transcript signed by your primary instructor that lists the secondary courses you have completed. It must document the successful completion of a secondary school education in a homeschool setting.

International applicants must follow the graduation requirements for the country where they are attending their last year of secondary school. If applicable, translation of all documents may be required. External exams must be official and submitted directly from the testing agency.
