Is Lynn interested in having homeschoolers apply?

We are always interested in having students with a wide range of academic backgrounds, including homeschooling. Your prior academics help broaden the diversity of campus.

Are there other homeschoolers currently at Lynn?

Absolutely! We have many students at Lynn with a prior background in home education. From the Conservatory of Music to the College of Communication and Design, we have former homeschoolers scattered all across campus. It's time to join them!

Do you require additional documents because I was homeschooled?

No. Just submit your application and send your test scores. We trust home education and do not see the need in additional verification paperwork on your end.

How can I make my application stand out as a homeschooler?

At Lynn, we judge all applications evenly, regardless of academic background. With that being said, we encourage you to boast the rigor of the many courses you took in high school.

Also, take a second to mention any extracurricular activities in which you participated. Make your transcript as detailed as possible for your admissions process!

Is it easy to talk to an admission counselor about my application?

Yes, absolutely. Our admission counselors love to connect individually with students and can be reached in many different ways. We would love to welcome you for a campus visit experience, but if you cannot make it to campus feel free to contact your admission counselor directly.

As a homeschooler, can I compete favorably for academic scholarships?

All applicants are automatically considered for any merit-based scholarships, regardless of academic background. Through the many factors in your application, our financial department will determine your eligibility for the countless scholarships available to incoming students.
