Home Schooled Student Information

Thank you for your interest in Assumption College!  Assumption welcomes and encourages applications from home-schooled students.  Home-schooled students have been a part of the Assumption community for many years, and we encourage students to apply for admission.  We understand that home schoolers have a unique situation, but we are confident that by submitting the materials listed below, we will get an accurate picture of your talents and interests.

Preparing your Application

  • Common Application and Writing Supplement (optional) 
  • A personal statement or essay (part of the Common Application)
  • Official Educational Records (if associated with a home school program).  Students may submit a detailed list of secondary level courses with supporting documentation attached.  If students have done any course work from a traditional high school or college, we ask that you please submit it in your application for admission.
  • Assumption College requires SAT or ACT scores for all home-schooled students. Assumption's code for the SAT is 3009 and our ACT code is 1782.
  • Letter of recommendation (Students should choose this candidate wisely, as these letters are looked at closely and the reference should not be a relative.)
  • $50 application fee payable through the Common Application website
