Homeschooling teenagers should contact the colleges and universities they would like to attend and ask about their admission policies. In a 1994 telephone poll conducted by the author of this brochure, a select group of admissions officers from large universities and colleges indicated willingness to consider applications from homeschooled students. In addition, all of the officers said that they accept standardized admission test scores -- along with other material showing experience in learning and collaborating with others -- in the absence of a regular high school transcript. Although admissions officers do not monitor this practice, some estimated that they admit a handful of undergraduates each year without a transcript. Interested teenagers should ask their local homeschool association for the names of college students who were homeschooled and would not mind offering advice about the college application process.

I would like to say that I'm a prime example that homeschool kids can get into college. I was homeschooled from 2nd grade to graduation. I started college in the 9th grade so that I could get a jump start on my degree. I'm majoring in Health Information Management. While I was in highschool I was only allowed to take so many classes toward my degree but what little bit I took helped me get finished sooner. I only ended up going a year to college instead of two. I also want to mention that I did receive a diploma from American School instead of a GED.

Yes, they absolutely can. From our experience, they also score higher on their tests a lot of the times.
