At Southern, we welcome an increasing number of homeschool students each year.
Southern Adventist University provides outstanding preparation for success and service in career, community, and church. Students on our campus enjoy a vibrant spiritual atmosphere rooted in a rich tradition of Seventh-day Adventist values.
Since homeschool programs vary widely, a few additional steps are necessary for determining scholarship qualification and academic placement and to help ensure your best success.
In addition to meeting the general requirements for admission, homeschool students must submit an academic portfolio documenting their academic experience.
