Home Schooled Student Admission Guidelines
The University of Evansville welcomes home schooled students who are sufficiently prepared to be successful at UE. At the earliest, students may apply for admission after completing a body of course work that is approximately equivalent to six semesters of high school preparatory material. At the latest, students should apply for admission by February 1 of the year that is equivalent to the senior year of high school. In addition to presenting a complete Application for Admission, home schooled candidates should submit the following to be considered for admission to the University of Evansville:
A home-prepared transcript is acceptable. Students are expected to have studied a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, which includes these areas:
- English – four years

NOTE: Chemistry required for engineering and nursing.
These courses are recommended, but not required for admission consideration:
- English – four years

Students applying for admission to the University of Evansville's Fall 2015 freshman class will be required to submit results from either the ACT (with the Writing Test) or the SAT-I (critical reading, math, and writing).
Application Essay Policy
All applicants are required to submit an essay of 250-500 words. Review the application essay requirements and essay topics.
We do not require a GED if all the above criteria are satisfactory.
Although it is not required, it is helpful for the home schooled student to have taken one or more college courses prior to enrolling full time at UE. The University of Evansville welcomes home schooled students in certain UE classes.
The University of Evansville's early action deadline is December 1. If you apply on or before December 1, your admission and scholarship decision will be mailed no later than December 15. Admission and scholarships will be offered on a space available basis after December 1.
The regular notification deadline is February 2, and decisions on admission and scholarship will be mailed no later than February 16. Once you have been admitted, you must reserve your space in the freshman class by submitting a $300 admission deposit* by May 1.
New academic information (test scores, grades) may be submitted to the University of Evansville prior to February 16, 2015.
