Home school students contribute to our rich, scholarly environment

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