We receive applications from homeschooled students each year. In reviewing your application, we consider your performance in rigorous course work, essays, standardized test scores, extracurricular activities, and one required letter of recommendation from an academic source.
Follow the Freshman Application Process
Our application review process parallels that of traditional high school applicants. In the application review, we will take into account the variety of settings and situations in which homeschooling can occur.
Preparing Homeschool Transcripts
Homeschooled students are expected to cover required course work at a level of achievement similar to that of our freshman applicants. On a transcript, the homeschool administrator should be sure to indicate:
- what courses are completed and what is in progress,
- the grades earned for each course, and
- a brief summary of what is covered in each course.
Detailed performance evaluations or course bibliographies are helpful but are not required. To figure out a format that works best, you might find it helpful to review tips about preparing a transcript provided by homeschooltranscripts.com or the HSLDA.
Transcripts from Additional Study
If homeschooling has been supplemented by formal course work either at the secondary school or post-secondary level, official transcripts from the school(s) or college(s) are required.
