Home School Programs

Homeschooled students should submit a copy of their high school diploma and final high school transcript that notates graduation. Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) publishes a list of registered entities to supervise home instruction in Maryland. Anne Arundel Community College uses this list, or similar lists for other states, in conjunction with the diploma and high school transcript to review high school graduation status.

Foreign High Schools

Anne Arundel Community College uses documents listed on the World Education Services (WES) website to determine foreign high school equivalent to U.S. high school graduation. Students should submit copies of the secondary documents listed on the WES website. Notarized English translations are needed in addition to the required documents for some languages.
