Admission & Financial Aid
Homeschooled prospective students applying to Marist College for undergraduate admission should be aware of the requirements to be considered for admission.
Along with a completed application and application fee, you are required to submit both of the following:
- Transcripts or the equivalent, signed by the parent, guardian, or homeschool instructor, that lists the secondary school courses completed by the applicant for grades 9-12 and the student’s performance in each course. If you did attend high school at any time please have the school send your transcript for coursework completed.
- Two letters of recommendation from someone outside the student’s household (teacher, community leader, or other individuals familiar with the student).
And one of the following:
- Proof of school completion by the state Department of Education or local school district. Specifically, include an official document that attests that the homeschooled education meets the equivalency to what is taught in the high school district. This document may be provided by the state Department of Education (if provided by that state), the homeschool liaison within the student’s school district, or from a school official in the high school district.
- The GED (General Education Diploma) is also an option along with any other State approved equivalency assessment through TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion).
