Special Information for Homeschooled Students

Given the variety of preparations among homeschooled students, Amherst's evaluation of such students is conducted on a case-by-case basis. Amherst uses the Common Application or the Coalition Application for first-year applicants, including the all related school forms included as part of those applications. Homeschooled students should identify themselves as such within the "Education" section of the Common Application or Coalition Application and should enter the name and contact information of the home school supervisor in the "Counselor" fields.
