Home-schooled applicants are required to submit all of the application materials required for first-year applicants, including a personal statement, and a transcript. It is understood that the transcript of a home-schooled student may differ from that of a traditional high school student. Regardless of the format, a transcript should include all 9th to 12th grade courses (including those in progress) and the timeframe of each course (academic year and semester). In addition, an assessment of performance (a letter grade, percentage, narrative assessment, etc.) is needed. Occasionally, applicants are asked to submit additional information describing the curriculum and/or texts used.
We have not yet determined whether home-schooled applicants will need to submit standardized test scores. We will make a determination in the near future. However, if you can safely take either the SAT or ACT, we encourage you to do so. Learn more about our test-optional policy.
Home-schooled students who are admitted are required to provide the University with proof of graduation in one of the following ways:
An official final transcript from the local school district.
An official final transcript from a home-school association or agency.
An official GED/HiSET score report.
An official college transcript(s) showing successful completion of 27 college credits
Home-schooled students who have completed AP exams and/or college coursework must request that those official score reports and transcripts be sent directly to the Admissions Office.
