Home & High School Admission Requirements

University of Arkansas Grantham is pleased to provide an online opportunity to help home school and high school students achieve their educational goals.

Home School Applicant

University of Arkansas Grantham requires homeschooled students to show proof that they successfully completed their state’s requirements for high school graduation. Homeschooled students are responsible for compliance with all requirements for their state. An official transcript is required to demonstrate that high school graduation requirements are met. Official transcripts provided by the individual responsible for the home school should include course descriptions with curriculum, grades and records of attendance. The person in charge of the home school program will be responsible for verifying the transcript as official.

High School Applicant

A high school student who wishes to enroll at University of Arkansas Grantham (while concurrently attending high school or home school) may apply for admission as a non-degree or non-certificate seeking student and may enroll in no more than four (4) credit hours (undergraduate coursework) per term.

Exceptions may be granted by the Chief Academic Officer for students wishing to enroll in more than four (4) credit hours. A high school applicant must submit a copy of his/her official high school transcript with a minimum 3.0 CGPA to be considered for admission as a non-degree or non-certificate seeking student.

The prospective student must also demonstrate one of the following:

    • ACT with a minimum average selection index of 18
    • SAT with a minimum average selection index of 440 Math and 440 English
    • PSAT with a minimum average selection index of 147
    • Successful completion (grade C or higher) of college coursework in which college credit was earned
    • Present a recommendation and written permission from the high school guidance counselor

Upon successful completion of high school or the equivalent, the student must provide proof of high school completion or equivalent before he/she will be allowed to enroll into a degree or certificate program. Enrollment with a non-matriculated status is limited to course attempts totaling 24 semester-credit hours. No student below the compulsory age of attendance will be permitted to enroll until it is determined that enrollment will not be detrimental to student success.
