Selective Admissions Requirements

The "open door" admissions policy does not apply to the following programs:

Home Schooled Applicants

All home-schooled students, without a high school diploma or GED, are eligible to apply for admission to a degree or certificate program provided they have successfully completed an approved home school program in accordance with the Massachusetts General Laws or the laws of their home state.

To determine whether a student has participated in an approved home school program, the student shall submit, with the application for admission (paper copy only; online application submissions will not be accepted), evidence that the home school program was approved by the student's school district's superintendent or school committee.

Additionally, if the home-schooled student is under the age of compulsory attendance, which is sixteen (16) years old in Massachusetts, a letter from the student's school district's superintendent or school committee is required stating that the student is not considered truant and would not be required to attend further schooling or continue to be home-schooled if the student has completed his/her home school program before the age of sixteen (16).

International Applicants

Please visit the International Applicants webpage, or contact the Admissions Office with any questions.
