BJU—a great fit for homeschooled students
Homeschool students, who make up about a third of the student body, thrive at BJU.
At BJU you’ll find regionally accredited programs that will push you to excellence. No matter what you study, you’ll have opportunities to put your knowledge into practice. And the hands-on experiences you get will help clarify your direction for the future. Through the liberal arts courses you’ll take outside your major, you’ll develop skills employers are looking for—skills like critical thinking, creative problem solving and clear communication.
If you’re excited about growing in your walk with Christ, BJU is a great place to be! Through challenging chapel messages, discipleship groups in your residence hall, classes taught from a biblical worldview and professors who care about your spiritual growth, you’ll find your faith being built up, not torn down.
Applying to BJU
As a homeschool student, your admission process is the same as all first-time college students. And you can apply as early as your junior year of high school.
What Makes A Good Transcript?
A transcript is documentation of your academic achievement in high school. It should be either typed or on a preprinted transcript form (sample template) and should include:
- Student name, address, school name, phone number, gender, birth date
- A list of courses year by year including the grade earned (i.e., Algebra 1) in 9–12 grades
- Grade: A, B, C, D and F (Do not use pass/fail)
- Credit awarded: 1 credit = full year course; ½ credit = semester-long course
- Graduation date
- Optional: Awards, extracurricular activities, certifications, participation or leadership in an organization
Official transcripts must include the handwritten signature of the student’s parent or course evaluator of the organization issuing the transcript.
|Course||Number of Courses|
Upon completion of high school, you should have a minimum of 16–18 completed courses, including at least 10 academic courses from the list above. A course is defined as five 45-minute periods each week for 36 weeks.
BJU offers you an education that is both affordable and valuable.
