How We Calculate Omnibus for Transcripts

The Omnibus is not a term understood by colleges on transcripts. 

Consequently, we have developed course language that colleges understand and accept. 

The chart below provides the names we recommend if a student has taken both the Primary and Secondary courses in a 12-month period.


HISTORY RELIGION ENGLISH
Omnibus I World Ancient History I Doctrine & Theology I World Ancient Literature I
Omnibus II World Medieval History I Doctrine and Theology II World Medieval Literature I
Omnibus III U.S., British & Modern History I Doctrine & Theology III U.S., British & Modern Literature I
Omnibus IV World Ancient History II Doctrine & Theology IV World Ancient Literature II
Omnibus V World Medieval History II Doctrine and Theology V World Medieval Literature II
Omnibus VI U.S., British & Modern History II Doctrine & Theology VI U.S., British & Modern Literature II


Calculating a Combined Grade: 

Students are required to take both Primary and Secondary of the same Omnibus level within the same 12-month period 

in order to receive three credits. Primary courses are weighted 60% and Secondary courses 40% for a final combined grade 

using the formula below. This grade is applied to each course credit. 

(Primary course grade x 0.6) + (Secondary course grade x 0.4)

Students who complete either a Primary or a Secondary Omnibus course, but not both, within 12 months, should be given one credit. 

The following chart provides the recommended course names for transcripts.
