HOME SCHOOL

At Western University, homeschooled applicants are evaluated for admission on an individual basis.  In order to make a knowledgeable assessment, Huron requires the following documents and supplementary materials.

  • Transcript of grades indicating all subjects taken and grades earned from grades 10 through 12.  These may be graded either by an independent homeschool agency or by the applicant’s parent(s).  The transcript should indicate the name of each course or subject covered, the grade received in each course, and the duration of the course including the number of hours and weeks. 
  • Standardized Testing Results (such as SAT I, SAT II, or ACT) sent directly to Western from the examining board.
  • Portfolio including a cover letter, course descriptions, copy of a graded essay, and a resume.
