Scholarship Tip: Add an Activity List to Your Transcript

Scholarship Tip: Add an Activity List to Your Transcript

An activity list is a key ingredient of comprehensive homeschool records that open doors for college admission and scholarships. Let me show you how to create all your records! Register for my free class here: Homeschool Records that Open Doors Webinar.

I recommend that you include an activity list with your transcript. I find that it really helps to show the individuality of the child, which can improve admission and scholarships.

Rotten test scores?

An activity list is a great way to showcase your child's awesomeness all the time, but especially when you don't have top test scores. Each outside activity is additional outside documentation that backs up the content of character, work ethic, and interests.

Selective colleges?

Adding the activities will demonstrate the passions of your child, what he or she is good at, and what makes your child unique. That's why it can help you stand out from the crowd, and get into very selective colleges.

How to do it

Look at your calendar to help you remember the activities your child participated in. Also, look at your checkbook to see what you have paid for! Look over your transcript for inspiration. Don't forget, t's important to avoid double-dipping with high school credits. Only record each experience as one high school credit. However, you can use your child's experiences as an activity and a credit. Just like my high school choir class was a high school credit class and a high school activity.

What it looks like

You would put dual enrollment on your activity list like this:

Activities: Dual enrollment at Highline Community College, 11, 12 - Dean's List 12. Highline Homeschool Orchestra, 9, 10, 11, 12. Martial Arts 9, 10, 11, 12 - Black Belt 12. Martial Arts Assistant Teacher 9, 10, 11, 12.

Hi Rachel,
No. Activities go on a separate sheet. You can see an example in this article: https://www.homehighschoolhelp.com/homeschool-activity-list - scroll about half way down the page.
I hope that helps!
