Policy Language

The University recognizes that the academic records of home-educated students vary widely. However, records of academic work plus any evaluations or grades awarded by the parent or other evaluator must be included on the academic records to properly evaluate the applicant’s eligibility for college-work.

Homeschooled applicants must submit the above requirements plus:

a)     Verification that they have completed a secondary school education. This requirement may be satisfied by a statement signed by the parent or guardian, a home-education diploma, or a graduation date posted on the home education records.

b)     Verification that the home education was carried out in compliance with applicable commonwealth or state laws. The form of this documentation will vary depending on the state statutes governing home education. The documentation may be a letter from the local school board or public school superintendent, a letter from an umbrella school, or a signed affidavit from the parent or guardian.

Policy Rationale

To inform prospective students of the transcript requirements for homeschool students.
