Especially for Homeschooled Students...

Students who were home schooled have found great success at Malone, including a role as student body president.

"I just felt comfortable when I visited Malone, which was something that I hadn't felt once throughout the college-search process," said recent alum Joshua Eck, who is now working as press secretary for Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted. "None of the other colleges compared to the peaceful feeling that I had at Malone."

The application process for students who were homeschooled is pretty much the same as it is most other students. See our policies here.

    It's required for all incoming students, but be sure to take full advantage of new student orientation. Says Josh, "I would say that the thing that helped me the most was orientation. At first, when I was looking online at the orientation schedule, I was irritated because I thought it seemed like I was at summer camp. However, looking back, orientation contributed to some of my best friendships. It also kept me so busy that I didn't have time to miss all my old friends or my family. By the time I realized I wasn't at home anymore, it was time to go home for fall break!"
