We welcome and encourage applications from homeschooled students. As much as possible, they are required to submit the same materials for admission consideration as traditionally schooled students.

These materials should include:

  • a transcript reporting all academic courses taken from 9th to 12th grades with course name, credit and grade as well as the type of instruction (online, local college, co-op, tutorial, etc). We prefer this document to list the courses in year order (versus by subject matter).
  • a document describing the academic courses completed during the previous three years and the current course work
  • letters of recommendation from individuals who worked with the student in an educational context, if available
  • SAT or ACT scores – self-reported scores via the Common Application, official score reports, copies/images of official score reports, and/or scores listed on official transcripts are accepted.  To update previously submitted testing, please email admissions@lafayette.edu with an image of the score report you would like added to your standardized testing profile.  Note: official SAT or ACT scores are required upon enrollment.

We strongly encourage homeschooled students to attend an interview, either on campus, or when available, a regional interview in their area.
