Community College Language on the High School Transcript


 

Making a transcript isn't so hard....  Well....  Until it gets complicated, LOL!  Renee asked a question about how to put foreign language on the high school transcript when classes were taken at a community colleges.


Lee,


I am watching your DVD's for high school.  Question about college classes.

My son took Elementary German 1 @ a college first semester

Now, 2nd semester, he is taking Elementary German 2


So - in high school credits - would those classes each receive a credit, or would it be 1 credit
adding these two together, because it took 1 year to complete both.  In other words:


Elem  German 1 - 1 credit

Elem  German 2 - 1 credit


OR


Elem German 1 & 2 - 1 credit


Thanks for your help.

Renee


This is what I would suggest for Renee:

Elem  German 1 - 1 credit


Elem  German 2 - 1 credit

Use the exact grade the college gave him.  A 3.7 is still a 3.7.  Each whole college class is a whole high school. credit.

I would use the college class titles, and indicate the community college where he took the class.  So for example:
*HCC Ger 101: Elem  German 1 - 1 credit *HCC Ger 102: Elem  German 2 - 1 credit

At the bottom of the transcript, define the acronym for your college:
*HCC is Highline Community College

In community college, it's possible to get three high school credits of a foreign language during senior year if they take three quarters of foreign language in a community college.  That's one way to catch up on necessary classes when something big is missing.

I hope that helps!  If you are working on your transcript, you can get more information on the Total Transcript Solution.  Then if you still have questions, you'll be able to call me directly and we can discuss it!

It seems like each high school across the country does it their own way. Sometimes a school district will have a policy - but the policy may not affect homeschoolers. Sometimes the district doesn't have a policy, but the local high school has a method for converting. In that case you can choose to use their method or not. I think this is one of those situations where you have some flexibility. Often the most comfortable way to convert college credits is to either ask the local high school what they do, or ask the college where you are applying. It's interesting how there isn't a standard way to do it.

Hi Lee,
I wanted to just add a suggestion that parents consult how credits from college are counted by public high schools in their state. Here in Ohio a one semester college class(community college or otherwise) counts as 1 high school credit and a one quarter college class counts as 1/2 high school credit. My children have attended a community college on the quarter system and we have used this information in preparing transcripts. I think where this is really important is when you are applying to in-state schools so that everyone is speaking the same language, so to speak. I have had no issues doing it this way and both my children have been accepted to the state schools they have applied to and have been awarded significant scholarships
Thanks!
Cassie

Unless of course you live in AL where the Dual Enrollment agreement with the cover schools (and public/private schools) states that a 3 credit college course is equal to 1/2 credit of high school...
