Don't Know Whether to Laugh or Cry

Recommended Posts

I thought we were done with the application process; DD has been admitted to a handful of schools already and we are just waiting on a SUNY school.  Today she gets a letter saying her application is incomplete and asking for a high school transcript, with a notation that says "Home School Clearing House".  I'm sure they are not cheering me on about clearing out our homeschool supplies.  What in the actual heck do they want?

That simply means a homeschool transcript that is complying with your state law.  If you transcript is missing the words official high school transcript, that could be why.  I always include that wording as well as Conducted in compliance with XX (state) code: § ###### on the transcript.  That has been accepted without question.

It complies with state law and has that wording on it.

Then I would call admissions and tell them that is all that is required by your state.  Some states require cover schools and transcripts have to be sent by the cover.  States don't keep up with other states.

Since you said SUNY, I assume this is a New York doesn't like homeschoolers thing. 

One old thread, ""a recognized home school clearing house program" what is this?, asks a similar question. I think they are prompting for a transcript from a cover school, an accredited school, or some other "official" organization.

I'd suggest you do what 8 suggestions & call admissions. SUNYs, from what I remember from previous threads, are notorious for giving homeschoolers a bad time - like insisting they take the GED. I hope a phone call or three will clear it up for you.

Which is particularly odd as NY does not actually recognize cover schools, online schools, etc. in their law.

If you pay for a company generated transcript apparently it is marked this way. I’ve now heard several stories of colleges asking for this, but they always backing off as soon as the parent calls.

Oh, that's something I hadn't heard of yet. We could still run into something like that, but haven't yet thankfully. Please update as you go, just for information's sake. I'd like to know how you clear it up!
