Home-Schooled Students

Home-schooled students will be required to provide a high school transcript and a copy of their ACT or SAT test scores. Both the grades on the transcript and the ACT/SAT test scores are reviewed to determine admissions and scholarship eligibility. Combined SAT scores of 1000 (reading and math, 500 each) or ACT equivalent are required for admittance.

Home-schooled students must be able to document that they have completed high school. Verification documents for home-schooled students include at least 1 of the following:

  • a high school diploma 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;


  • if state law does not require a home-schooled student to obtain the credential described in the preceding bullet, a certification from a party acceptable to the university 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.
