Homeschooled young people who attend BJU enjoy the support of teachers and administrators alike, who make the University a welcome “home away from home.” Enrolling well-prepared for college, you can excel in your studies while here.
In fact, the nearly 30% of our student body that graduated from homeschool programs as a group have a higher ACT score and earn a higher college GPA than those educated in traditional schools. You will be comfortable at BJU, and BJU would love to partner with you and your family.
What is my admission process?
Your admission process is identical to the undergraduate admission timeline. However, we have prepared for you tips on preparing a good transcript.
A good high school transcript should contain:
Note: The transcript should be on a pre-printed transcript form, or it should be typed.
- A history of the subjects studied — Use titles that are clearly understood.
- The level of subjects studied (by grade, if possible)
Example: English 9, English 10, etc.
- Unit assignments for each subject studied
- A unit is defined as five 45 minute periods each week for 36 weeks.
- Usually academic subjects such as English, math, science, etc., are assigned one unit per year while nonacademic subjects such as home economics, physical education, music, etc., will be assigned either one-fourth or one-half unit.
- An assignment of level of quality
- Most will use a grading scale of A, B, C, D, and F.
- If another scale is used, include an explanation of the grading scale. Example: A=94-100, B=87-93, etc.
- We do not recommend the use of a pass/fail system.
- Clear explanations of any special considerations or variations
- If Accelerated Christian Education or Alpha Omega use Pace or LifePac numbers.
- An identification of all extracurricular activities
- The results of all standardized testings —We ask all students to take the American College Test (ACT).
- A graduation date
