Hi!

My son is getting ready to go into 9th grade this coming school year.  I remember a site that gave me a list of colleges that accepted homeschoolers.  My son really want to go to  Cal Poly and I tried their website and can't find an answer.

Anyone have a website for looking this up?

Thanks So Much,
Deb

I’m not sure if that college accepts Homeschoolers or not but a site that we use and is helpful with a list of homeschooling friendly colleges is linked below.

If you have a specific college in mind, you could call and request information.  Perhaps, this could be a project that your son could do.  Or you can send an email to admissions and ask them to send you the information that you need.  Your son is only in 9th grade and has plenty of time to do the research and start preparing himself.  I believe that most colleges do accept homeschoolers.  Good luck.

This site might help you.

http://learninfreedom.org/colleges_4_hmsc.html

If the college you want isn't on the list on the opening page, the site does have other pages with more colleges listed alphabetically, that you can check.

Another thing to keep in mind is that everything is negotiable 

and it never hurts to ask, I have several friends both in the US and in overseas who attended colleges that didn't "accept" homeschoolers.  Visit the college, talk to the people in charge and bring examples of your child's work.  Think of it as a store and you are the customer (and the customer is always right)

Don't give up if they say the don't "accept" homeschoolers

hope this helps
