How to Transfer High School Credits to JMHS
To apply for transfer credits, an official transcript from an accredited institution must be submitted to us no later than 90 days after you enroll. Prompt receipt of your high school transcript allows us to evaluate your high school credits so we can determine your appropriate grade level and suggest the best learning track for you to graduate in a timely manner.
- Download and print the JMHS Transcript Request Form (PDF)
- Put in the required information and send the form to your previous school or Board of Education office
- Have your school fax (770) 729-8578 or mail the transcript to us at the following address:
James Madison High School

If you are unable to provide a transcript and are over age 18, you may waive the transcript requirement through the transcript exemption form found in your Student Portal.
Transfer Credits From Homeschooled Students
Homeschooled students without a traditional transcript should submit a complete portfolio and/or documentation of their school work, along with the Home School Form. No portfolio? Request a test from us that, if passed, permits you to remain a student but does not award credit.
