Academic core requirements
The state of Washington maintains a set of academic core requirements (the College Academic Distribution Requirements, or CADRs) that all students have to meet to qualify for college admission. You'll need to document in detail — through a high school transcript, GED score, or an academic resume — how your home-based instruction fulfills these requirements.
