Join a small, Liberal Arts & Sciences University.
Home-schooled students, who are familiar with working independently, often have an easy transition to the academic life at Quest. In classes of 20 or fewer, students study closely with professors who they know on a first name basis. Working with their faculty advisors, students propose and shape their own major, and are encouraged to participate in hands-on experiences such as internships, study abroad opportunities, and field work.
Here are some tips for students coming from untraditional academic programs:
• Review the application process and requirements. Quest believes that grades, though important, are just one facet of an individual—we want to know more about our applicants.
• Contact your Admissions Counsellor who can answer any questions related to your specific case.
• In the absence of a high school transcript, we recommend you send us any of the following: evaluations, GED, recommendation letters, your resume, your reading list, published works, and/or a portfolio.
• While we don’t require any standardized tests, in the absence of a transcript, SAT or ACT scores may be helpful.
