SAGU is proud to be a home school friendly university. The Admissions Office works closely with each home-schooled student’s unique situation. A transcript* from grades 9-12 must be submitted, or GED certification. An ACT or SAT score is also required.
* If using curriculum that provides a high school transcript, it must show graduation date and final GPA.

Home-schooled students under the age of 17 who do not have a high school diploma from an accredited high school or organization, and do not have a GED, may be admitted under a “non-degree seeking” status. By law, these students are not eligible for state or federal financial aid until they reach the age of 17, but may be eligible for institutional aid. At age 17, these students will be changed to “regular-degree seeking” status, at which time they may be eligible for state and federal financial aid.

Home School Transcript Requirements

  1. Student Transcript (provided by outside source)
    If affiliated with a home school program, academy, or consortium, the home school family will need to request that this program forward the student’s official transcript to SAGU. If the student participates with an organization that does not provide a student transcript, the family will be responsible to provide a transcript as stated in the step below.
  2. Student Transcript (provided by family source)
    If the program has been customized by the family, the family will need to provide SAGU with a detailed transcript. The person in charge of the home school program is the Administrator. The following 9-12 grade coursework information is required on the transcript:
    • Student’s personal information including name, address, and date of birth
    • Administrator’s personal information including name and address
    • Name of each class
    • Grade for each class
    • Final cumulative GPA
    • Signature of Administrator
    • Date of graduation: Once the student has completed their requirements for graduation, it is the responsibility of the home school family to provide a Final High School Transcript. The student’s date of graduation must be included on this transcript.
