Preparing a Transcript Workshop

CHASE SC is working to plan Preparing a Transcript Workshops throughout the state.
Please check back to see when we will be in your area.

This workshop is designed with the high school student in mind. However, we encourage all homeschooling parents to attend. Pencil in a transcript step by step, and become more comfortable preparing your own student's transcripts. Parents are walked step by step through the process of filling out the transcript, and will fill one in during the workshop.

Transcripts are not required under any of the three homeschooling laws; however, you as a homeschooling parent should be prepared to prepare your homeschooling student's transcript. If your children are interested in attending college or obtaining a scholarship offered by the SC Commission on Higher Education, you will need to know how to prepare their transcript.

Do not delay attending one of these workshops. Even if your children are in Kindergarten, you should plan on attending a workshop near you. As previously mentioned transcripts are not required; however, you can prepare and maintain a transcript for your child each school year. By preparing and maintaining your child's transcripts each year, you will gain experience and knowledge. This experience and knowledge will make you comfortable when preparing your high school student's transcript for college or to apply for scholarships.

Again transcripts are not required; however, if you are considering returning your children to public or private school a transcript can help to smooth the transition for you and your student.

You can attend this workshop as many times as you feel you need to, as the fee is only $1 per person per workshop, which will help to cover our costs.

Any support group wishing to host the Preparing a Transcript Workshop please contact CHASE SC at When considering hosting the Preparing a Transcript Workshop, please think about offering one at 3 PM, and one at 6 PM on the same day. This will give more of your support group members and homeschoolers in the area an opportunity to attend.
