Great Scholarships with Homemade Transcript and Homeschool GPA

Great Scholarships with Homemade Transcript and Homeschool GPA

Anne wrote with a wonderful report on her homeschooled daughter! Her homemade transcript, mommy-made grades, and homeschool GPA earned huge rewards! They received wonderful scholarships and her daughter is successfully launched into adulthood!

"My daughter was accepted to the Bible college - a small school in Pennsylvania that does not offer full-ride scholarships, but . . .

     a. She received the institutional President's Scholarship of $10,000 a year because her GPA was over 3.7. Thank you for helping me make a transcript that reflected how well she did in her studies!
     b. Her "mommy-made" GPA was confirmed by her excellent grades in online dual-enrollment classes. If she finishes her 4-year degree through this school and keeps her grades up, I understand that the fees for these classes will be reimbursed to us. That's like getting a semester for free!
     c. When we took her to school last month, she was given a $1000 gift card to spend at a special shopping day at Best Buy. We couldn't understand what we had done to earn this, but the admissions counselor told us that it was because Nicola had enrolled "super early." All students who turned their applications in by December 15, 2016, received either a MacBook or $1000. Wow! Thank you for encouraging us to apply early!

I also asked the admissions counselor if I needed to send her the course descriptions to explain our classes like Mandarin, piano, etc. She said no, my transcript "looked great" and had "everything we need." So the course descriptions will just be for Nicola's and my encouragement that "we did good." Thanks for helping me to build a qualified transcript!

She was offered a job on campus through the work-study program to be an assistant in the Financial Aid office of the school. One of her jobs will be . . . posting scholarship opportunities to their social media sites. So she'll be one of the first to know what is available to apply for! God is just SO good . . .

Feel free to pass any of this along to encourage others. I want people to know that there are still blessings available ~ even from schools that don't give full-ride scholarships!"

  • How to Write a Cover Letter for Your Transcript

    Usually a transcript cover letter is a simple introduction provided when sending homeschool records.

The cover letter should always highlight the positives, and put a positive spin on anything encountered.
