Home-schooled students are required to provide their high school transcripts and copies of their SAT or ACT test scores. Both the grades on the transcript and the SAT/ACT test scores will be reviewed to determine admissions and scholarship eligibility. The following scores are required for admittance: SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score of 480 or ACT English & Reading (combined) score of 34 and SAT Math score of 530 or ACT Math score of 21.*
Home-schooled students must be able to document that they have completed high school. Verification documents for home-schooled students include at least one of the following:
- a high school diploma/transcript recognized by their state department of education
- high school equivalency exam
or, with respect to home-schooled students who are above the compulsory age of school attendance,
- a secondary school completion credential for home school (other than a high school diploma or high school equivalency exam) provided for under state law; or
- if state law does not require a home-schooled student to obtain the credential described in the preceding bullet, a certification letter that the student has completed a secondary school education in a home-school setting that qualifies as an exemption from compulsory attendance requirements under state law.
It is the student’s responsibility to provide verification of high school completion. Without such verification, the student may not be allowed to register for the current term or continue enrollment and will be in jeopardy of revocation of admission to the university as well as losing all financial aid.
*For the 2021–22 academic year, in light of COVID-19, if SAT/ACT are unable to be obtained, please contact admissions for a formal academically focused admission interview with an admissions staff member in-person, over the phone, or virtually (i.e., Zoom).
