In addition to the application requirements for U.S. Students, we ask that home-schooled students submit the following items:
- A copy of your home-school curriculum: This document should include subject areas studied, texts used, and years studied for each discipline.
- Letters of recommendation: One of your two required letters of recommendation should come from a tutor, evaluator, or teacher who is not a family member. If possible, both required teacher recommendations should come from a knowledgeable academic source outside your family; a parent often completes the guidance counselor recommendation form.
We also recommend that home-schooled applicants complete an interview on campus or with an alumni interview. This interview can be scheduled at any time before the application deadline. Please call the Office of Admission at 800-247-0113 to make arrangements.
We welcome additional materials that may help us better understand your academic preparation. These materials may include SAT Subject Tests (particularly in literature and mathematics), reading lists, etc.
