No. In the old days, homeschoolers were advised to have their transcripts notarized to make them more official.
Now you can send official transcripts just like public and private schools do through our national Homeschool Clearinghouse.
Our partnership with Parchment allows homeschoolers to create official transcripts recognized by over 4,000 colleges and universities.
Using Parchment takes the place of notarization and delivers transcripts in the format admissions departments expect.
Now your transcript is just as official as everyone else's without the need for a notary.
Yes. The transcript may be requested many years after high school graduation. It's recommended that it be printed off or saved electronically in your permanent records or given to your students for safekeeping.
The best approach is to incorporate all high school work into one transcript.
If the school your student attended prior to homeschooling was accredited, provide these transcripts along with your homeschool transcript as part of the college application process.
Use the commentary section of the transcript to list the school years attended, the name of the public/private school, and its accrediting agencies and/or associations.

Generally, 1 high school credit equals 120 hours of class work.
The average number of credits completed per year will vary depending on your student's future plans. Over the course of four years, the average number of credits completed for a general plan is 20 — 22 credits, for a college prep plan is 24 — 28 credits and for a rigorous college prep plan is 26 — 30 credits.
Most states use the Carnegie unit which equates 1 credit for a year long high school course and ½ credit for a half year or semester long course if a standard high school textbook is used. Some states use a variation to the Carnegie unit by assigning 2 credits (Indiana), 5 credits (New Jersey), or 10 credits (California) for a year long course.
Typically, a 3-5 credit college course taken in one semester converts to a one year long, 1 credit high school course.
Place an asterisk beside the course title and note in the "Miscellaneous" section of the transcript the school where the course was taken.
High school level courses in objective areas such as science, math or foreign language can be included on the high school transcript when taken prior to 9th grade. Keep good documentation of all high school courses.
List any high school course taken prior to 9th grade in the freshman section and asterisk the course. In the miscellaneous section, indicate the courses that were taken prior to 9th grade.
You can list Algebra or other courses taken in 8th grade in the Freshman section followed by an asterisk
(e.g Algebra I *). Then add a note of explanation in the miscellaneous section (e.g. * Course taken as an eighth grader).
When titling a course on the transcript, use a brief, descriptive title so that others will have an accurate idea of the course content. Don't necessarily use the textbook title as the name for your course title.
