The University of New England welcomes applications from qualified home-schooled students and we review each applicant with careful attention.   

Home-schooled students who enroll at UNE are required to complete home-schooling at the secondary level as defined by their home state law. Please check with your state to make sure you are following their guidelines and send us any necessary supporting materials.

What is Early Action?

We offer the non-binding Early Action deadline for undergraduate applicants who desire early notification of their admission status. Applicants wishing to be considered for Early Action will need to submit their completed application by November 15. Students submitting all application materials on or before November 15 will receive notification of their admissions decision prior to December 31.

Applicants for Nursing, Pre-Dental Medicine (3+4 D.M.D.), and Pre-Medicine (3+4 D.O.) should apply by the Early Action deadline. Any program applications submitted after a deadline are reviewed on a space-available basis.


Home-schooled applicants should submit the following:

  1. Common Application, a Coalition Application or a UNE Application with the $40 application fee
  2. Your high school transcript from grades 9–12. If you have taken any courses at a school, college, online, or by correspondence, please be sure to have official transcripts sent directly to us. Detailed performance evaluations and materials such as course bibliographies or syllabi are also helpful, but not required.
  3. Two letters of recommendation. At least one letter must be from someone who can assess your academic ability. The second letter may be from someone who can further assess your academic ability and/or level of co-curricular involvement. 

UNE uses a test-blind admissions policy, which means we will not consider ACT or SAT scores for general admission. Instead, we will review your high school experience as a whole. Please see our test policy for more information.
