Providence College welcomes applications from home schooled individuals. If the home schooled applicant follows a prescribed curriculum, evidence of course work completed will need to be submitted. If not associated with a particular program or institution, the applicant is encouraged to submit a descriptive resume which outlines the student's high school work, level of challenge, and depth and breadth of curriculum, including reading lists and a graded writing sample.
Providence College's test-optional policy applies to all applicants, including home schooled students. Home schooled applicants may decide whether or not they wish to have their SAT/ACT scores considered as part of their application for admission. Students who apply without submitting test scores receive full consideration for admission and merit scholarships.
