Liberty University Admissions for Homeschool Students
Transitioning from Homeschooling to Liberty
Are you excited to transition from homeschool to attending a university? We want to make this transition as smooth as possible for you. Below you will find information on Liberty University Admissions, as well as specifics on homeschool admissions.
Before reviewing the admission requirements, check out these additional resources to better understand college life and immerse yourself into Liberty’s culture:
For admission into Liberty, you will follow the steps in our 4 A's of Admissions, and you will have specific requirements for the documentation you need to submit as a homeschool student. Read on to learn more!
We understand that transcripts from a homeschool curriculum may vary widely from one family to another. However, all transcripts must meet certain university standards to facilitate an admission decision and academic placement should the applicant be admitted.
Homeschool records must indicate the following:
All courses completed
The number of credits, units, or hours associated with each course
A letter or numerical grade indicating the student's level of performance in that subject area for that year
Courses or subjects reflected on the transcript should be organized by grade level (9 through 12) and date
To be considered "final," transcripts must include the following:
A graduation date
The homeschool addendum, which is an acknowledgment by the school administrator that the student has completed the equivalent of a high school education AND it abides by state standards (see below for more details)
A signature from the school administrator (usually a parent)
Preliminary (9th-11th grade) transcripts can be used for an admission decision and do not require the graduation date or homeschool addendum
Homeschool students must take and submit results for the ACT, SAT, or CLT college entrance exams
If the General Educational Development (GED) has been completed in lieu of high school graduation, official GED test scores will be required
The high school transcript and GED requirement will be waived if the student has earned an associate degree
By using our sample transcript as a guide for submitting your homeschool transcripts, we will be able to review your file more easily for admission and academic scholarships.
Suggested Course Completion
Although we do not require specific high school courses for admission, we recommend completing the following courses for college success:
At least 4 years of English
2 years of college preparatory mathematics
2 years of laboratory science
2 years of social science
2 years of foreign language
At least 4 units of elective credits in subjects such as art, music, or drama
You are not required to submit the homeschool addendum until graduation. For acceptance, we simply need your transcripts from 9th-11th grade. Upon graduation from high school, you will need to submit the following:
Verification that you have completed a secondary school education. This requirement may be satisfied by a signed statement from your parent or guardian, a homeschool diploma, or a graduation date posted on the homeschool transcripts.
Verification that your homeschool education was carried out in compliance with applicable Commonwealth or state laws. The form of this documentation will vary depending on the state statutes governing home education. The documentation may be a letter from the local school board or public school superintendent, a letter from an umbrella school, or a signed affidavit from the parent or guardian.
If the Admission Committee determines that additional information is needed in order to make an admission decision, you may be required to submit letters of recommendation or other relevant documentation.
