Beth, this is how I bundled them: we laid the one piece transcript on top of the spiral-bound comprehensive record. On top of that I had a cover letter explaining what it contained and the student that it was meant for. I put that into a large manila envelope to mail. But each college may ask for it in a different way. Some will want these records submitted digitally.
I have one more question! I have been reading your kindle books--Setting the Records Straight and Comprehensive Homeschool Records--and maybe you mentioned this and I just missed it.....but how did you bundle your records together when you sent them to colleges? What did you put them in? I am having trouble visualizing this.
Thanks and God bless,
I really appreciate your tips. I am wondering if you can tell me, when we send colleges the first transcript (in progress during 12th grade), do they want to see the 12th-grade courses listed on the transcript, or just the completed ones?
Thank you so much!
Lee says that all colleges are different, but all will expect to see senior year grades. She talks about how to list them on transcripts in a few articles. You might find this one helpful: Sending Transcripts for Senior Year Applications

"Old-fashioned" homeschooling is still your best bet for growing passionate learners! You can learn how to homeschool independently and take your life back. Instead of a "one-size-fits-all" assembly line education, choose the freedom to teach your children at their pace and consistent with your values. Pursue happiness while homeschooling, instead of pursuing the busyness so common in our society.
