NCAA Requirements: NCAA no longer accepts accredited transcripts to meet their requirements, and requires that all schools or courses are directly approved by the NCAA. TPS has NCAA approval, and a list of NCAA-approved TPS courses is available on the NCAA website. Please use the TPS six-digit NCAA code 850857 to locate TPS courses on the NCAA site.

Diplomas

Any student of any nationality living anywhere in the world can pursue a TPS high school diploma. The TPS diploma is a certification of academic accomplishment, showing that the student has completed a thorough set of TPS courses with a worldwide reputation for academic rigor.

A diploma is not a grade report or transcript, and is not required to be submitted with applications to U.S. colleges. However, it may be required in some international contexts where a student is required to be enrolled in a "diploma program." For the U.S. homeschooler, the TPS diploma is a mark of considerable accomplishment, but not a graduation requirement. TPS Diploma students must also use the Accredited Transcript option listed above, because the transcript is required by colleges for admission.

TPS offers two levels of high school diploma -- standard and honors. Both generally require the student to have taken most core courses through TPS for all four years of high school. Families desiring to pursue a TPS Diploma should work with a TPS Academic Advisor for all four years of high school, to ensure requirements are met annually.
