Penn State Lehigh Valley welcomes applications from homeschooled students. Small class sizes, individualized attention from campus faculty and opportunities for research and leadership are just some of the ways Penn State Lehigh Valley can be the best fit for you. Below are the admissions requirements for homeschooled students.
Below are the basic admission requirements for all applicants, though depending on the major you choose, you may have to fulfill additional requirements.
To successfully apply, you must submit:
- the online application
- complete the Self-Reported Academic Record section of the online application
- SAT and/or ACT scores. Standardized test scores must be submitted electronically from the testing service. Penn State does not accept test scores on high school transcripts or through the mail.

- ACT (Penn State code #3656)
Since many students in homeschool programs follow a non-traditional high school curriculum, we may request further detailed documentation of their high school coursework and evaluations.
If you have already enrolled in or plan to enroll in any academic program in addition to high school (for example, college-level courses through a local college or university), please submit those credentials with your application in addition to the coursework documentation. Accredited program credits may be transferable to Penn State.
