Nova Scotia Universities Admissions Information for Homeschoolers

Below is a list of Nova Scotia universities and colleges that have admitted or are willing to consider admitting homeschooled students. This is not a complete list. OFTP recommends that homeschooled students approach one or more universities that they are interested in attending to determine: a) if they accept homeschooled students and b) what are the criteria/policies for acceptance. It is a good idea to do this well in advance so that the homeschooled student has adequate time to ensure that they will meet the admission policy requirements for that university.

Please note that even if a college or university does not have a specific admissions policy for homeschoolers, many have considered and admitted homeschooled students to their institutions.

OFTP feels that this information should be available to everyone, so we have presented it here, outside of our Members Only area.  All of the information presented here is compiled by volunteers, from information shared with us by colleges, universities, and members that have navigated their children’s placement in these institutions.

This University will consider accepting homeschooled students but do not have a homeschooling admissions policy in place. They prefer to assess students on a case by case basis. They recommend that students take some kind of standardized test such as the SATs.
