Home-Schooled Students

Our Admissions team is experienced in working with home-schooled applicants and can assist you in completing your unique admissions requirements.

When to Apply

We recommend you apply early in the fall of your senior year. November 1 is the Early Notification Deadline, and students whose applications are complete by that date will receive their admissions decision the week of Thanksgiving. Applications completed after November 1 will be reviewed and decisions sent on a rolling basis.

Your complete application includes:

In addition to the regular application requirements, you must include these items:

  • Letter of recommendation from a non-family member who is knowledgeable regarding the applicant’s academic potential.
  • Official transcripts from any college(s) attended
