If an official high school, GED or HiSET transcript (or equivalent) is not received by the end of the first semester, Goodwin College will accept the student’s attestation that they have graduated along with the name of the high school or state agency, city, state and year of graduation, as listed on the student’s admission application, to document that the student is a high school graduate (or equivalent) unless the college has reason to believe otherwise due to receipt of conflicting information.
  2. Home-schooled students must provide one of the following:
    • In a state that provides certification, that certification will be accepted in lieu of a high school transcript.
    • In states that do not provide certification, students must provide a transcript or the equivalent, signed by the student's parents or guardian that lists the secondary school courses the student completed s acceptable documentation of the student's successful completion of a secondary school education in a home school setting.
    • Home schooled student who have successfully completed a minimum of an Associate's Degree are not required to submit high school transcripts or certification, but must provide a copy of their official transcript from the institution they graduated from.
