Homeschooled Students

Homeschooled students have the same requirements and admissions process for the Dual Enrollment/Early College Program.

Who can apply?

Any high school student who is:

  • at least 14 years of age with freshman classification or higher,
  • maintaining a high school cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher (submit transcript),
  • meet minimum qualifying scores on State approved tests
  • approved by your high school counselor and/or principal,
  • currently pursuing your high school diploma and
  • desiring to take classes that are not available through your high school.

Applications should be received by the following deadlines for better class selection:

Summer and Fall – April 15

Winter – October 15

What is a transcript?

A transcript is a record of all the classes a student has taken in their high school career and the grades they earned. Each transcript should include two semesters per academic year, and a cumulative grade point average for a 4.0 grading scale. Please see example.

How do you apply?

Send your application, your transcript and a copy of your state approved test scores to the Admissions Office at GRCC.

If I am a homeschooled student, who signs as my counselor/principal?

Most homeschooled students obtain academic guidance from their parent/guardian. In this case, your parent guardian would be required to sign in both the "parent/guardian" and "counselor/principal" places.
