SUNY Sullivan welcomes applications from students who do not have traditional high school diplomas and have pursued secondary education in a non-traditional manner, and students currently being homeschooled.
Students who are homeschooled and meet all admission requirements may take college courses on SUNY Sullivan’s campus or online through our digital campus via one of the pathways listed below.
If a homeschooled student is working with their local high school, they can enroll as an 'Early Admissions' student.

Homeschooled students may not enroll in limited-access program courses (e.g., Nursing, Respiratory Care).
Homeschooled students working independently from their local high school are eligible for study in the college's 24 Credit Hour High School Equivalency program.
Please note that prospective students under 16 years of age must follow the steps below:
- Submit an 'Under 16 Application' signed by a parent or legal guardian.
- Submit your immunization records & proof of vaccination (if you have an on-campus presence). In addition to your Immunization record, as of January 2022, all students with an on-campus presence must be fully vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus (At this time, students that are registered 100% online are exempt from this requirement, unless they are using on-campus services). Failure to provide the required documentation will result in administrative withdrawal from seated classes.
- Complete and pass the English placement essay and meet with an academic advisor, who will enroll the student in an appropriate program. The Admissions office will contact you to help you connect with an advisor. It is the express intention of this policy to admit students who have the intellectual and emotional capacity to benefit from SUNY Sullivan’s programs. Some academic programs have restrictive enrollment policies.
- Take a Math placement test (if applicable).
- Submit a certificate of residence (if living outside of Sullivan County, NY)
