Home-Schooled Applicants

Binghamton is happy to accept and review applications from students who received their education through home-schooling experiences.

To maintain consistency in how we read applications from all students and to ensure we can thoroughly evaluate whether you've met the necessary foundation of skills and academic credentials to be successful at Binghamton as a home-schooled applicant, you must submit the following materials in addition to those required of all freshman applicants:

  • An individualized home instruction plan (IHIP) for all four years or a complete portfolio of your work. Quarterly reports covering your entire "high school" time are also accepted.

AND EITHER

  • A letter from the superintendent of the school district in which you reside attesting to your completion of a program of home instruction that is the substantial equivalent of a four-year high school course of instruction.

OR

  • A high school equivalency diploma (GED). Provide the score report (a passing score is required) and the diploma itself, if available.

Submit these materials:
