Appendix: Home Schooled Students (5.1.5)

Home Schooled Students (5.1.5)

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
    1. Home schooled applicants may also submit a copy of a transcript from any secondary school attended, whether or not they may have graduated therefrom, 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.
    2. Home schooled applicants may be required to submit transcripts, or records of study, if such are required for other applicants.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Each college shall develop such procedures, forms, and other materials as may be necessary to manage this policy.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
