Home Schooled All My Life

Postby Devven » Tue Sep 04, 2007 8:41 am

I've been home schooled and my life using a curriculum. Either ACE or AOP. Now that I'm in 10th I think I should start some classes at our community college. That's not a big deal.. Take a placement test and pay them money. After I am finished with school I have wanted to go to the UofA and I was wondering if that is going to be hard for me to do? We have records of my schooling.. Like my grades and all. But I'm not sure if they will see that as enough. I know some people were saying that they may make you take an SAT or a test like that before you can get admitted. That isn't a problem. I just want to know what you all think about the situation.


Thank you much,

Deven

State colleges aren't very restrictive in their entrance requirements. You will probably need an SAT or ACT, and I still recommend taking as many AP / CLEP tests as you can so you have the best possible chance of getting some college credit, but they'll probably accept a short writeup of what you did for each subject as sufficient.

Of course, you should never base your future on guesswork. Call up the admissions office at U of A and ask them what their policy is on accepting homeschooled high school graduates. Have them send you that policy in writing, if possible.
