Students who have pursued a secondary education outside a traditionally accredited curriculum, including homeschool and cyber school, are welcome to apply to Bryn Mawr with the addition of the following application materials.


  • Transcript or evaluation of coursework

    • Include syllabi for any self-designed courses.
  • Graded research paper with evaluator’s comments
  • Homeschool essay
    • We require an explanation of the decision to homeschool from either the student or parent/guardian.
