Admissions & Applying

The decision to attend college may be one of the most important ones you'll ever make. Don't worry—we're here to make it easy.

If you’ve been homeschooled, you have the same requirements as prospective freshman who have been in traditional school.  We look for the following items in addition to the online application: 

  1. ACT/SAT test scores (because these, along with GPAs, are used to determine our Andrews Partnership Scholarship awards, it’s best if they’re taken early in your senior year of high school).
  2. Two recommendations from non-relatives (this is part of the application).
  3. Either
    1. A detailed transcript with a cumulative GPA, completed and signed by the person who directed your program.  Need help?  Call 269-471-6346 or 269-471-6718 for additional info on making a transcript and/or other issues. OR
    2. GED certificate (only if a transcript isn’t available from your parents/homeschool program).
  4. If English isn’t your first language, you may have to demonstrate your proficiency by taking an exam.  If you don’t pass English requirements, you may need to take English Intensive Courses before enrolling full time.  For more information, check out the Andrews bulletin.
