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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
