Home-Schooled Students


Florida Gulf Coast University welcomes any student who has finished his or her high school studies through home schooling.

A growing number of students have enrolled at Florida Gulf Coast University with home school backgrounds and as a group these students have excelled in both academic and co-curricular activities on the FGCU campus.

Home-schooled applicants are considered for admission to FGCU based on the same criteria and deadlines as Freshman Applicants. To apply for admission, follow the Freshman Application Process and list the name of the high school as “home school” on the undergraduate application.

If the home school is using a transcript service, have the service provide an official student transcript. However, if you utilize another transcript option, then make sure it includes the following elements: 1) a list of courses with descriptive titles, 2) the letter grades earned in each course, 3) organize the courses by the academic year in which it was completed, and 4) record the student's graduation date. After grades are earned in the designated courses, the transcript should be signed by the home school educator and then have the signature notarized. If the home school is offering courses where the title does not make it clear as to subject content, please include a description of these courses.

The applicant should submit SAT/ACT test scores electronically from the College Board or the ACT testing agency. Transcripts and test scores received and opened by the university may not be transferred to a third party or the applicant and become the sole property of FGCU.

If you have any specific questions concerning home-schooled students, please contact R. Marc Laviolette at (239) 590-7891.
