How is the college application for a homeschooler

How different is it applying to colleges as a homeschooler, I heard that it is harder the application process than a being a student from a psychical school , why ? Isn’t it the same process ?

    It's the same process, but appears to be harder because:

    - The parents have to issue the transcripts (vs just ordering them from traditional schools).
    - The parents have to write/fill out the evaluations/recommendations (vs requesting them from counselors/teachers).
    - Many of the application forms are tuned to applicants from traditional schools. It takes some thinking/innovation to figure out how to convey "non-traditional" information with a "traditional" form.

    Our S homeschooled in high school and attended a tutorial cooperative - which prepared transcripts for classes taken there. He also attended courses at our local community college during 11th and 12th grade and his transcript from there strengthened his application. Instructors from both "schools" provided his recommendations.
