Proof of High School Completion

Completion of high school must be verified. Below is a list of acceptable documents that will satisfy the verification requirement. 

High School Diploma
An applicant with a high school diploma must submit either:
  • A copy of the student’s high school diploma, or
  • A copy of the student’s final official high school transcript that shows the graduation date.

Please note: If your high school diploma is not in English, Baker College requires that you submit an evaluation of the document to demonstrate equivalency to a U.S. diploma. The National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) has contact information for companies that provide evaluation services. Visit http://naces.org/.

Recognized Equivalent of a High School Diploma
An applicant who has the recognized equivalent of a high school diploma must submit either:
  • A copy of the student’s General Educational Development (GED) certificate, GED transcript or the transcript received after passing a State-authorized exam (HiSet or TASC), or
  • An academic transcript that indicates the student successfully completed at least a two-year program that is acceptable for full credit toward a bachelor degree.
Completion of a Home School Program
An applicant who was homeschooled must submit the following documentation:
  • Michigan residents must submit a transcript or the equivalent, signed by the student’s parent or guardian that lists the secondary school courses the student completed, and documents the successful completion of a secondary school education in a homeschool setting.
  • Residents of other states:
    • If State law requires a homeschooled student to obtain a secondary school completion credential for homeschool (other than a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent), a copy of that credential.
    • If State law does not require a homeschooled student to obtain a secondary school completion credential for homeschool (other than a high school diploma or its recognized equivalent), a transcript or the equivalent, signed by the student’s parent or guardian, that lists the secondary school courses the student completed and documents the successful completion of a secondary school education in a homeschool setting.
