Meet Your Enrollment Counselor

Hi, I’m Tessa Avila, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be your enrollment counselor! First, I want you to know that I understand exactly what you’re going through as you’re preparing for college because, just like you, I was homeschooled through high school. It’s an exciting and unique journey, and navigating the transition to college can be both thrilling and overwhelming. You may be wondering “what resources are available for homeschool students who are going to college?” But fear not, because I’m here to guide you every step of the way and ensure that your transition from high school to college is as smooth as possible!

I’m a proud SEU alumna, so this institution holds a special place in my heart.

How to Create Your Homeschool Transcript

To ensure that all of your hard work is accounted for, you’ll need to create a homeschool transcript that accurately lists your completed courses, grades, GPA, and extracurriculars. Don’t worry; it’s easier than you might think.

These steps, inspired by Classical Conversations (an SEU partner), will help you craft a comprehensive homeschool transcript.

Start by listing all the courses you’ve completed during your high school years. Include all core subjects like math, science, English, and social studies, as well as all electives and specialized courses.

Assign grades for each completed course based on your performance. You can use a traditional letter grading system (A, B, C) or a numerical grading scale, but the key is to be consistent and thorough (and of course, honest!)

Based on your assigned grades from step 2, calculate your Grade Point Average (GPA). Use a standard GPA scale (usually 4.0) and factor in honors, AP, or dual enrollment courses if applicable (which will be weighted on a 5.0 GPA scale). This will give a quick overview of your overall academic performance.

Don’t forget to highlight your extracurricular activities. Whether it’s community service, sports, arts, or clubs, these experiences provide a well-rounded view of your skills and interests.

You can find templates online or create your own. Include your full legal name, date of birth, graduation date, and any other essential information. Keep it simple!

By following these steps, you’ll create a homeschool transcript that effectively represents your educational journey and sets the stage for a successful college application.
