I'm going to ask a dumb question. I need to send the transcript to a college this week and this is my first time sending one. How do I list the classes which have not been completed and for which I've not yet calculated a grade? Some of them are required for admission but it's too early for them to be officially recognized. Also, do I calculate the summary of credits and GPA according to what has already been accomplished? She graduates in May and hopes to start college this fall. We're getting a late start with the admissions process. Our lives have been disrupted the last ten months with death and serious illness. The college which my daughter is interested in has been more than accommodating already, so I'm hesitant to ask them how they want to see the transcript. ~Melissa on Facebook
Thank you so much!! Yes, I did buy your your book, printed it all out and slipped it into a notebook.* I call it my Transcript Bible.* It's been very helpful--for confirming what I thought and "holding my hand" throughout the process. The one thing I didn't expect after doing the transcript was that feeling of gratification. My daughter and I wish, now, that I had even done report cards during the elementary years that looked much like a transcript. Just one more thing to tell others coming up behind us. ~Melissa on Facebook

Just so everyone will know, as soon as the admissions counselor at the college received her "in process" transcript my daughter received a phone call telling her she had been accepted. The letter she received stated, "This acceptance is pending our receipt of your final official Home School transcript prior to registration." She received a scholarship package from the college as well.
Thank you, Lee, for making yourself so accessible to "dumb" questions!!
Scheduling....one thing many of us struggle with as homeschoolers! We find ourselves so busy many times, that we forget that scheduling can help! (A crazy busy life can be avoided!
