Home Educated Students

San Diego Christian College welcomes home educated students. We recognize that many families are taking the non-traditional route for the high school education of their children.  

Home educated applicants should follow the admission procedures for freshmen. If an official high school transcript is not available, a GED (General Education Development) test may be required. If you have been educated through a home education organization, you should request that the organization send proof of completion or an official transcript to the Admissions Office.

**To qualify as official, a transcript must be an original hardcopy, neither photo-copied nor electronic, with a signature from the school or organization’s designated officer, or from the student’s primary educator. A final transcript is an official transcript including a graduation date. If you have questions regarding your transcript please contact the admissions office.

Check this out:  $2,000 Scholarship!  

If you have been home educated for at least 3 of your 4 high school years, you are eligible for our Home Education Scholarship! This $2000 scholarship is renewable each year you attend San Diego Christian College.  For more information call 1-800-676-2242 or send an inquiry to: Admissions.
