Requirements for Homeschooled Applicants

The University of Oregon welcomes applications from homeschooled students. Homeschooled applicants must meet the following requirements to be evaluated for admission. Meeting these requirements makes a homeschooled applicant eligible for admission consideration through our holistic process.

  • Complete the application for admission, being sure to list “homeschool” as a current/previous school attended. You should list this even if only part of your high school record was earned through homeschool study. Like all other freshman applicants, homeschooled students should submit a self-reported transcript.
  • Demonstrate second language proficiency
  • Demonstrate readiness for college-level mathematics in one of the following ways:
    • One semester of an approved mathematics course (college algebra or beyond) with a C- or better from a regionally accredited college
    • One year of algebra II/integrated mathematics with a C- or better from a regionally accredited high school
    • While we do not recommend taking the ACT, SAT, or SAT Subject tests, if you have already taken one of these tests, you can submit those scores and we will consider them on a case-by-case basis.

Note: Admitted homeschooled students are not eligible for automatic merit scholarship consideration (Apex, Summit or Excellence). However, homeschooled students are welcome to apply for additional scholarships, such as the Presidential Award, Stamps Foundation Award, or Diversity Excellence award. Contact admissions counselor Laura Romer if you have any questions.
