Homeschool students at ASU
Arizona State University welcomes homeschool students and recognizes the unique academic experiences these students contribute to our rich, scholarly environment. We have a growing community of home-educated students who thrive at ASU.
We understand that your academic background differs from students who attended traditional public, private or charter schools. As a homeschool student, you can easily fill out the application and then include additional information to accurately demonstrate your accomplishments.
As a homeschool student, you must meet the general requirements for ASU admission, including specific documentation with your application to confirm your completion of the requirements.
Steps to apply to ASU as a homeschool student
Complete an undergraduate admission application.
To expedite the admission decision, self-report your high school grades in the application.
ASU does not have a preference for which application you use to apply. ASU does not require an essay or personal statement in any of these options.

If you applied for admission through the Common Application, pay the application fee through that application.
There is no form, paper or code to submit for an application fee waiver. If your financial circumstances qualify you for an application fee waiver, you will answer a series of questions in the application that will automatically qualify you and post to your account.
Laboratory Science Courses: (For online high schools ONLY)
ASU requires students to complete 3 different lab sciences. In order to determine if your lab sciences meet our lab science requirement, we may need additional information from you. If we require additional information once your admission application reaches our evaluation team, you will see a Priority Task displayed on your MyASU page titled ‘Course Description’. You can provide the additional information required through one of the following:
- You can have your high school submit your lab sciences to the courseapproval.asu.edu website for ASU to review if it is not already listed on the website.
- You can submit a course description form for each lab science taken in an accredited online high school environment if not already approved for your entire high school to ASU’s homeschool representative.
- You can choose to be evaluated without some or all of your lab science requirements met. Note, if you choose this option, you may not be admissible to the university.
Send ACT or SAT scores (not required).
ACT or SAT scores are not required for admission, but may be submitted for ASU course placement and to meet aptitude requirements if you have less than a 3.00 GPA in your competency courses. To find the requirements for your specific program, please visit ASU’s Degree Search. Have your scores sent to ASU from ACT or College Board when you register for the test. Learn more about sending your test scores to ASU in our FAQ section.
Check application status.
Once you’ve completed all these steps, ASU will review your application. To see if you have any missing items and to review your admission status, log in to My ASU using your ASURITE User ID, which is sent to you after you apply for admission.
Submit a secondary school education affidavit or high school transcript (if applicable).
Homeschool applicants may self-report their grades or send a homeschool transcript. A homeschool transcript is a list of courses you have taken and the credit and grade associated with each course. The transcript must include a signature from parent or guardian who oversaw the education.
If you have completed courses through a traditional high school, you may self-report your grades or have your high school send an official copy of your transcripts to ASU.
If you have coursework from both a traditional high school and from homeschool transcript (see above for requirements), please self-report grades for both or have a transcript sent to ASU.
If you have earned college or university credit, request to have your official transcripts sent directly to ASU from the issuing institution.
Should a home school transcript not be available to submit and you only need proof of your high school graduation, you may complete the Affidavit of Completion of Secondary School Education, form in substitution of a home school transcript. The affidavit must be completed by a parent or guardian who oversaw the education.
