Home Schooled Students

Homeschooled students are eligible for admission if they:

  1. Provide a letter from the superintendent of the school district in which the student resides, attesting to the student's completion of a program of home instruction that is the substantial equivalent of a four-year high school course of instruction and meets the requirements of Section 100.10 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, or
  2. Receive a passing score on the general comprehensive examination for the state high school equivalency diploma (GED)

Proof of high school equivalency may not be a homemade transcript or letter from a parent. If the student's home schooling experience was not monitored by a school district or accredited institution, he/she will be considered a student without a high school diploma or GED.
