Home school students contribute to our rich, scholarly environment

The unique experiences of home school students contribute to the diversity of ASU Online. If you graduated high school in a home school setting and have not completed an Associate degree or higher (or the Arizona General Education Curriculum) then you are considered a homeschool student. Not a home school student? Select a different student type.
