Admissions Requirements for Homeschooled Students

Students who have been homeschooled at any point during their high school years should pay special attention to the following guidelines.

Each homeschooled student must complete:

  1. The application for admission, including the personal statement
  2. A reference form (reference.pdf) or letter from a tutor or teacher who can comment on the applicants ability to be successful academically in college
  3. Official scores from either the ACT or SAT exam
  4. A homeschool transcript listing all courses, including English, mathematics, science, social science, and foreign language courses

Official transcripts are also required for all coursework completed at other accredited institutions, such as community colleges or universities.

Each homeschooled applicant must also provide a transcript, or other documentation in lieu of the transcript, as noted below:

  • If the homeschooled applicant has completed high school under the auspices of a diploma-granting organization, the applicant must provide to Luther College an official transcript from the diploma-granting organization.
  • If the homeschooled applicant has completed the high school experience independent of any diploma-granting organization, Luther College requires evidence of the applicants preparation for college. The applicant must provide:
    • A homeschool transcript listing all courses, including English, mathematics, science, social science, and foreign language courses
    • GED test results
