Homeschool Student Admission Requirements
Homeschool students should submit the following documentation along with the regular undergraduate application and application fee.

  • ACT or SAT test results (best if taken by early senior high school year since these scores are also used, along with GPAs, to determine significant Andrews Partnership Scholarship awards)
  • One of the following:
  • Detailed transcript* with a cumulative GPA (Transcript should be completed and signed by the person who directed the program along with the help of the student where appropriate. Call 269-471-6718 or 269-471-6346 for additional help on making a transcript and other issues.)
  • GED Certificate (only if a transcript is not available from the parent(s) or homeschool program)
  • Two recommendations from non-relatives
  • English Proficiency: If English is not your first language, you may be required to show English Proficiency through an exam. For more information on English Proficiency Requirements and Exams that are accepted check out the Andrews Bulletin. If you do not meet the requirements, then English Intensive Courses will be required before enrolling full-time in regular courses. Such courses are offered at Andrews University.

General Admissions Statement

Admission to Andrews University is available to any student who meets the academic and character requirements of the University and who expresses willingness to cooperate with its policies. Because Andrews University is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the majority of its students are Seventh-day Adventist Christians. However, no particular religious commitment is required for admission. Any qualified student who would be comfortable within its religious, social and cultural atmosphere may be admitted. The University does not discriminate on the grounds of race, color, creed, disability, national or ethnic origin, sex, marital status or disability.

Admission to one of the schools of Andrews University does not guarantee admission to a specific department or program within a given school. Transfers from one school to another may be made when the student meets the admission requirements for that school and has the consent of the deans involved.

All undergraduate students seeking a degree must show proof of completing secondary school (high school transcript, or international equivalent ), provide ACT and SAT scores or other nationally recognized examination results, give the names and contact information of two non-relatives who are willing to provide recommendations, and provide all official college transcripts from all institutions that they have attended.
