Homeschooled Students: Our technology university welcomes students from all types of educational backgrounds and encourages homeschooled students to apply. Due to the diverse nature of homeschool requirements from state to state, UAT requires the following materials in order to evaluate a student's academic history for acceptance.

If attending a nationally recognized and accredited homeschool program:

  • Unofficial transcripts

If NOT attending a nationally recognized and accredited homeschooling program:

  • Detailed homeschool transcripts (course titles, brief description of each course content, a grade or performance assessment for each course, details on duration of study, and expected graduation date) AND a second academic indicator such as the SAT, ACT, or college GPA (where 12 or more credits were completed at a single institution).

Please note: This information must be submitted within two weeks of applying in order for an application for acceptance to be reviewed by our technology College Admissions Committee. In addition, documentation indicating the homeschooling meets regulations determined by the state must be on file before the student may enroll. Other forms of proof of high-school equivalency will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but should be approved in advance by contacting the Office of Admissions at admissions@uat.edu.

Important Dates

UAT utilizes a rolling acceptance process that determines eligibility and accepts students year round. This means you will receive a decision within a few weeks of submitting your technology degree program application to our Office of Admissions.

There are some very important dates to keep in mind during your admissions process, so please review the Academic Calendar.

Benefits of applying early and early acceptance

The process of being admitted early can be a great benefit to you, since it allows you to create a relationship with a representative from the technology university who helps guide you every step of the way. In addition, applying early familiarizes you with G33k life and helps you begin to connect by:

  • Granting you access to UAT's intranet
  • Pairing you with an Admissions Advisor to help you and your family with this decision
  • Establishing a connection to campus events and news
  • Helping you become part of the UAT technology college community
  • Beginning the application process

UAT has introduced a locked tuition program for our technology college students. When you complete enrollment, the tuition published at that time will be your tuition for the duration of your studies at the University (provided you are actively enrolled in the University). This affords you the ability to plan for your entire technology degree program and alleviates the stresses associated with an increase in tuition over time.

Scholarships and financial aid

Paying for college is a major concern for every technology college student. University of Advancing Technology offers academic, community and other types of scholarships, and also offers resources that help you find outside scholarships and financial aid.

Transfers

Transfer credits are college-level credit hours that were earned at an institution other than UAT. Potential technology degree students may choose to have these evaluated by our Transfer Credit Specialist. There is no cost for preliminary evaluations.

There are benefits to transferring credits to UAT:

  • 52% of students who enrolled at UAT Online in 2012 transferred at least one semester credit hour.
  • The three most commonly transferred courses on campus at UAT in 2012 were:
    • ENG101-Composition I
