Attend College While you Home School

If you’d like to go to college during home-school these are the requirements:

  • High school GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • ACT scores (composite of 19 or higher, sub scores of 18 or higher in English and 19 or higher in Reading and Math)
  • ACT scores may be from a national or residual test

HOW TO CHALLENGE ACT SCORES

The Accuplacer exam may be used to challenge ACT scores once they are on file. For more information on the Accuplacer and Residual ACT, please visit Testing Services.

HOW MANY CLASSES CAN YOU TAKE?

You can qualify for up to four (three credit hour) free classes.

  • For one free class a semester, homeschooled students must meet the minimum eligibility qualifications.
  • Beginning fall 2020, a homeschooled student can take three classes in a semester if they have a composite score of 21 or higher on the ACT.
  • Please note that the Dual Enrollment Grant only pays for three credit hour classes in entirety. three hour classes include, English, Speech, History, Psychology, Sociology, and more. All science classes are four credit hours, as are some math courses. Please ask your high school representative if you aren't sure how many credit hours a particular class is.

STAYING ELIGIBLE FOR THE DUAL ENROLLMENT GRANT

To remain eligible for the grant, maintain your collegiate GPA of 2.75 or higher. You can borrow from your Tennessee Hope Scholarship once you get to class number five. Do this on a dollar-for-dollar basis after free money is spent, although it will not cover the entire tuition.
