Homeschool Freshman Student Admission
Homeschool freshmen are students whose primary or secondary level education has been overseen by their parents or other designated homeschool teachers rather than in a public or private institutional school setting.
HCU has been named #7 on the list of “The 25 Best Colleges for Homeschool Graduates” by thebestschools.org. Each year, several homeschool students choose to attend HCU. It is HCU’s goal to make the application process as easy as possible and we hope you will join our community of faith and scholarship!
Consideration for admission to Houston Christian University is determined by competitive scores on the SAT, ACT, or CLT and by strong high school performance.
NOTE: Test Optional Policy applies for Summer/Fall 2021 admissions.
If you are applying to HCU as a freshman and homeschool graduate, follow the Application Procedure below to submit the required information to the Office of Admissions.
