Linfield College welcomes homeschooled students to apply for admission in the same manner as students applying who have attended a neighborhood, charter, or private high school.
Students who have not completed their high school credentials will be considered Freshman Applicants.
Students who have completed their high school credentials and have completed college coursework for credit will be considered Transfer Applicants.
For either application, students should submit the Home School Supplement (available via the Common Application) in lieu of the Secondary School Report, as well as a transcript completed by the individual who supervised the academic programming.
Beginning fall of 2011, applicants without a high school diploma must provide an official copy of the GED showing an overall average score of 450, and any transcripts of studies preceding the GED.
Students are welcome to submit a Teacher Recommendation from an instructor other than a parent or guardian. If one is not available, a recommendation or reference letter from an individual who has witnessed the student’s work ethic, academic abilities and could otherwise adequately discuss the student’s readiness for college.
