Colorado State encourages applications from homeschoolers who have completed a rigorous college-preparatory education. We understand that homeschooling offers diverse teaching methods and learning environments personalized to fit you and your family.
If you have a calculated cumulative grade point average using either letter or percentile grades, Colorado State University will use that GPA for admission and scholarship decisions and for state reporting purposes.
Guidelines established by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE) require that all applicants from non-graded educational settings (i.e., narrative or portfolio assessment) be assigned a 3.3 “proxy” GPA (on a 4.0 scale), regardless of the type of assessment system used by the family or curriculum. While the 3.3 proxy GPA is part of the academic profile, the admission decision process still includes a detailed, personal review of the actual assessment of student performance. It is critical that you provide information about your individual experience and achievements.
