Transfer Credits

We Accept Transfer High School Credits

Good news for prospective students! If you have successfully completed some high school courses elsewhere, you may be able to transfer your high school credits into James Madison High School. Our Registrar will evaluate your transcripts and let you know how many transfer credits will apply toward your JMHS diploma.

Why You Should Transfer High School Credits

  • Eliminate the need to repeat courses
  • Reduce your tuition
  • Graduate faster

We accept full and half credits, which means you can transfer a partial year or even partial course from your high school. We accept a maximum of 17 transfer credits, and will reduce your tuition $50 for each credit accepted for a total possible tuition savings of $850. And remember JMHS offers a 9th through 12th grade curriculum.

How to Transfer High School Credits

To apply 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 in a timely manner.

  1. Download and print the JMHS Transcript Request Form (PDF)
  2. Put in the required information and send the form to your previous school or Board of Education office
  3. Have your school fax (770) 729-8578 or mail the transcript to us at the following address:

James Madison High School
Attn: Transcripts
6625 The Corners Parkway, Suite 500
Norcross, GA 30092

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.
