Colorado Universities and Colleges That Accept Homeschoolers and Unschoolers

Colorado School of Mines (Golden)
If you are home-schooled or if your high school does not rank or give grades, they will work with you to fairly evaluate your record. In these cases, they will usually rely more heavily on your ACT or SAT scores.

Colorado State University (Ft. Collins)
CSU does not have any admissions requirements that are unique to homeschoolers. The admission process for homeschoolers is basically the same as for public and private school students.

Colorado College (Colorado Springs)
They do not require an official high school diploma or GED for admission consideration, and have had students apply after three years of high school or with some combination of high school record and other kinds of assessments. Homeschooler applications are welcome.
