Summer Bridge Program

Students accepted for admission will be placed into the appropriate English and math courses depending upon a number of factors including GPA, test scores (if provided) and transfer credit work.  Students placed into learning support courses will have the opportunity to take these courses before their first fall term as a part of the Summer Bridge Program.

Home-Schooled Students

Admission decisions are based on the applicant’s academic record, test scores (if submitted), recommendations, and in some cases, a personal or telephone interview. All applicants must submit transcripts of home school work attempted or GED (if studies are done through a formal home schooling program, this record should be an official transcript from the program. If the program is crafted by parents, a portfolio detailing subjects studied, texts used, and books read should accompany an evaluation of the student’s performance in specific areas), transcripts of college course work attempted, if applicable, and scores from either the SAT or the ACT.

The breadth of Andrew College academic experience allows home-schooled students to thrive in an environment that is nurturing and challenging. Andrew’s small classes, caring professors, and academically challenging curriculum prepare home-schooled students to succeed at the next level and beyond. Home-schooled students have been welcome at Andrew and have historically done well. Andrew College looks forward to meeting the needs of the increasing number of home-schooled students.
