Admission for Home-Educated Students

Arizona State University welcomes home school students and recognizes the unique academic experiences these students contribute to our rich, scholarly environment. We have a growing community of home school students who thrive in the ASU environment.

We understand that your academic background differs from students who attended public, private or charter schools. While our general admission requirements and application are geared toward students who have attended a high school, as a home school student, you can easily fill out the application and then include additional information to accurately demonstrate your accomplishments.

Admission requirements

Home school students must meet the general requirements for ASU admission, including specific documentation with your application to confirm your completion of the requirements:

  • Competency Requirement - Per Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) policy, laboratory sciences must be conducted in real labs and students should complete the Evaluation of Laboratory Science Courses form as part of the application process. (If you have questions about the laboratory sciences requirement, please call 480-965-7788.)
  • Aptitude Requirement - Must be met with SAT or ACT test score.
  • Graduation Requirement - Upon completion of secondary school education, complete the Affidavit of Completion of Secondary School Education. The affidavit must be completed by the parent/guardian and notarized.

When the Application for Admission asks you which high school you attended, enter your home town name. Scroll down through the city options until you find Home School at the bottom.

Your application will be reviewed as soon as all of these items are received by Undergraduate Admissions.

For questions regarding admission for home school students, please contact Nicole Sumrall at 480-965-6427 or email asuhomeschool@asu.edu.

Admission to Barrett, the Honors College

Barrett, the Honors College is consistently recognized nationally as a top honors experience. Barrett combines the caring and community of a top, small college on all four ASU campuses with the resources of a major public university. Home school students who want to be considered for admission to Barrett are encouraged to submit an application. Barrett requires a separate application, and an early application is strongly suggested. The Barrett admission staff will help you with any questions you have about filling out the application.

Scholarships

Through the New American University Scholarship program, ASU recognizes exceptional academic performance. Remember to submit your transcripts and test scores when you apply for admission by or before the scholarship priority date so that you may be considered for scholarships.

Home school students will be considered for ASU scholarships upon admission.
