CAN A PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTION OFFER DUAL CREDIT TO HOME SCHOOL OR PRIVATE SCHOOL STUDENTS?
Yes, legislation (SB 158 Dual Credit Program Parity) permits homeschool and private school students to participate in the dual credit program with a tuition and fee waiver. Homeschool and private school students however are responsible for incurring the costs of their textbooks, materials, and associated course fees. Homeschool and private school students are also required to enroll in a meta-major, must have a Next Step Plan available for review, are limited to a maximum of two courses per semester, and are eligible for the dual credit program only until their 18th birthday regardless of their high school diploma status.
Home School students are encouraged to meet with an Advocate from the Success Emporium to create an educational experience that will align with their unique needs. Please call us at 575-315-1120.
