PSAT Homeschool Codes
Over this week and next many school districts will be hosting the PSAT. This test is an important component of the National Merit Scholarship Program.
We have received reports that sometimes school districts do not provide the “Homeschool Code.” Consequently, homeschoolers end up using the public school code and their results become part of the public school total.
HSLDA encourages all homeschooled students who are taking this test to use the “Homeschool Code” for their state. The information is provided here:
|990999||District of Columbia||992799||Montana||994599||Utah|
|991399||Idaho||993199||New Jersey||994999||West Virginia|
|991699||Iowa||993499||North Carolina||995499||Puerto Rico & U.S. Territories|
|991799||Kansas||993599||North Dakota||995599||Outside United States|
ACT: 969-999 SAT: 970000
We hope to receive a better picture of homeschool results on the PSAT if every homeschooler is fairly counted.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Note: While using the “Homeschool Code” helps the NMSP administratively, it does not mean that if you use the public school code your results will be lost. NMSP follows up with all students who make the grade and will discover your true status as a homeschooler.
