Soka University acknowledges that students may have completed their secondary education through a homeschooling path. We are committed to helping students and families navigate the admission process.
It is recommended that you contact one of our admission counselors to learn about specific steps in your Admission process. Homeschool students will generally follow the same admission checklist as first-year students or first-year international students.
Home school students are encouraged to provide a transcript of the GED with their application. Although not required at time of application, providing a transcript of the GED with your application can provide additional academic context to the admission committee.
Applicants who are admitted to Soka University will need to provide a transcript of the GED prior to orientation and registration.
Students in an accredited home school program may not need to provide a transcript of the GED and should contact the Office of Admission at email@example.com.
Yes, homeschooled applicants must submit official transcripts. If the program is an accredited homeschool program, the published curriculum is required as part of the review process. Coursework taken at a traditional high school or at the college level is also required. Otherwise, students must submit an official transcript that outlines the homeschool curriculum.
The transcript should include:
- Course titles
- Duration of study
- Description of course content
- Grades or narrative assessment(s)
Providing as much detail and information possible will provide additional academic context to the admission committee. Reading lists, methods of instruction, and/or syllabi can be included.
