Is Transcript Required for Home School International Student?

Question: I am an international student and wish to enter an Ivy college. I am currently following my 11th grade at home, with a yearly home school program. I do not have a complete semester to show but only some grades that will be on the yearly transcripts. The yearly transcript will be official. Does the university accept a yearly transcript instead of 2 semesters?

Most students submit a yearly transcript. So you will be okay without any semester grades to report … at least as an 11th-grader. However, the colleges may request your grades in January of your senior year. If you don't have grades to report midway through 12th grade, you may have to provide a document that describes your progress so far.
