Admission for Home School Students

You must complete 16 units of high school coursework: Eight prescribed units include four in English, two in mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II, or Geometry), one in history, and one in natural science; and eight elective units from Group I or from both groups, provided not more than four units are counted from Group II. 

  • Group 1: English, foreign language, history, mathematics, science, social studies 
  • Group 2: Business subjects, speech and communications, music, art, theatre 

If you don’t meet Belhaven’s minimum requirements for acceptance, we may ask you to meet for an interview, write a personal essay, or provide a letter of recommendation. 

You are required to submit a transcript of some kind. We want to see the courses you’ve taken and your final grade each subject. 

If possible, organize your transcript to show the specific subject areas, time frame in which each was taken, and the grade earned. 

Be sure to list all academic coursework taken. You can also list other coursework, such as health, physical education, home economics, etc. Your parent or guardian should sign the transcript verifying that it’s correct. 

When you fill out your application form, you can submit your results for the American College Test (ACT), the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), or the Classic Learning Test (CLT). 

If you won’t be providing standardized test scores, you need to select the “Test Optional” choice on your application. To be eligible for this option, your high school cumulative GPA must be at least 2.75. 

  • Some academic majors, including Education and Nursing, require test scores. 
  • Our admissions team may request an academic recommendation in lieu of test scores.
