We encourage home-schooled students to apply for admission to Northwest Missouri State University. Home-schooled students will be evaluated similar to those students who attend or are attending a public or private high school. Applicants must have their ACT or SAT results submitted directly from ACT or CollegeBoard. A transcript listing of high school courses and grades in each course is also required for admission.
In order to be accepted, home-schooled students must meet one of the following criteria:
Students who do not meet these requirements will be reviewed on an individual basis. Official ACT/SAT scores directly from ACT or CollegeBoard are required for course placement and scholarship purposes.
A student may be considered for admission after receiving an equivalency certification meeting the following criteria: a total score of at least 680 with no subscore below 150 on the GED or a total score of at least 75 on the HiSET. ACT/SAT test scores directly from ACT or CollegeBoard are also required for course placement and scholarship purposes.
The ASSIST Program at Northwest was designed for the first-time freshman who, after thorough and thoughtful review of academic records and transcripts, is believed to have the potential to be successful at Northwest given the proper support. Students selected for participation in this program have identified areas of weakness and must participate in this program in order to enroll as a student at Northwest.
