Home-Schooled Freshmen

If you finished your high school studies through homeschooling, you will find our small class sizes, personal attention, and rigorous academics appealing!

IUPUC’s admission requirements for home-schooled students are the same as the requirements for students attending public or private schools.

General Information and Recommendations

  1. Take the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) I or American College Testing (ACT) exam during your junior year or early fall of your senior year.
  2. An official transcript of your homeschooling is required (see below).
  3. Apply for admission when you have six semesters of grades and SAT or ACT scores. You may be admitted pending receipt of your senior year transcript. Your application may be held until seventh-semester grades are submitted.


If the home school program in which you participated furnishes a high school transcript, please submit it with your application. If you did not participate in a home school program that transcripts your educational record, please follow these guidelines to document your studies and develop a transcript. Handwritten transcripts and/or test scores are not accepted.

Transcripts for home-schooled students must include:
  1. Your name, address, phone number, and date of birth.
  2. For each high school grade level (grade 9, 10, 11, 12) please provide:
    • All courses and the grade number or letter earned for each.
    • Credit earned for each course by semester or year.
    • If the subject content is not clear from a course title, please include a description of the course(s). For example, first-year algebra is self-explanatory, but first-year integrated mathematics is not. Appropriate course descriptions will assist us in evaluating your preparedness for college-level courses.
  3. Grading scale used to determine grades.
  4. Extracurricular activities in which you participated.
  5. Date of graduation.
  6. Home school registration number from the Indiana Department of Education (optional).
  7. Signature of your home school administrator or teacher verifying that she or he was your educator.
  8. Include a copy of your official SAT or ACT score report.
