Admission Requirements -
- A home-schooled student is defined, for purposes of this policy, as someone who has completed a secondary school education in a home school setting that is treated as a home school or private school under state law, or who is in the process of doing so.
- Home-schooled students who wish to attend a community college and pursue a degree or certificate must meet the same admission requirements as any other applicant, except for providing evidence of graduation from a secondary school or obtaining a state equivalency diploma. This includes, but is not necessarily limited to, completing an application, paying admission fees, submitting evidence of inoculation against measles, mumps, and rubella, taking placement tests, etc.
- Home-schooled applicants may also submit a copy of a transcript from any secondary school attended, whether or not they may have graduated, or a copy of a federal or state equivalency diploma, or a summary of the secondary program of study they pursued, and a certificate of successful completion thereof, signed by the parent or other provider of the home schooling.
- Home-schooled applicants may be required to submit transcripts, or records of study, if such are required for other applicants
- Home-schooled applicants who wish to enroll at a community college, but not pursue a degree or certificate, shall be treated as any other non-matriculated student at the college.
- Home-schooled applicants may, at the discretion of the college to which they are applying, be required to have an in-person interview with the college’s director of admissions, or such other officer as the college may direct, to assess the applicant’s ability to benefit from the program of study.
- Each college shall develop such procedures, forms, and other materials as may be necessary to manage this policy.
- Each college shall also establish an appeals process, with appeals going to a designated dean, who may, in special circumstances, waive the requirements of the policy.
- If and when the State of Connecticut enacts laws or issues policies regarding home-schooled students or their admission to public colleges, this policy will be revised and reissued, as may be necessary, to ensure compliance therewith.
