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.)

Financial Aid Information
To be eligible for financial aid, each home-school student needs to provide Assumption with documentation of a completed high school curriculum. This would include certification that the student has met the local school district's graduation requirements, GED equivalent or final high school transcript.
The Assumption College Merit Scholarship Program is based on academic and cocurricular merit, not financial need. It reflects the College’s commitment to promoting a culture of academic excellence and leadership. All students who are accepted for admission to Assumption College are considered for scholarship awards, which range from $2,500 to $19,000 per year.
