Home-Schooled Students

Required Documents

For students applying as a first-year student, a completed application and high school transcript(s) are required, except in circumstances where a student is home-schooled or where the traditional high school transcript is, for various reasons, not available.  

Home-school/High School/College Verification

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.
