Yes, your student will need to submit an official transcript. If you are enrolled in Seton Home Study or Mother of Divine Grace, these programs provide an official accredited transcript upon request. If you are not part of a program that provides a transcript, you may write one. Include the name of your school, your student’s personal information, a list of the names of the classes your student has completed, broken down by grade level (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th), and the letter grade your student received for each class. You will also need to include a grading scale and a calculated GPA. The school proctor (usually a parent) must sign the transcript. Check with your state’s Department of Education for any other requirements before mailing the transcript to Belmont Abbey College’s Admissions Office.
High school students are required to complete 4 units of English, 2 units of a Foreign Language, 2 units of Social Science, 2 units of Science, 3 units of Math, and at least 3 units of additional academic electives.
Belmont Abbey College is a small community that fosters growth of the individual in mind, body, and spirit.
