Board of Regents policy statement regarding the admission of home-schooled students:
- ALTERNATIVE REQUIREMENTS FOR HOME-SCHOOLED STUDENTS AND GRADUATES OF NONACCREDITED HIGH SCHOOLS
Applicants from home schools or graduates of nonaccredited high schools may validate the CPC in an alternative way. SAT I scores and satisfactory documentation of equivalent competence in each of the CPC areas at the college preparatory level may be used in lieu of the Freshman Index and Carnegie unit requirements of the CPC. A student whose SAT I Composite (Verbal plus Mathematics) score is at or above the average SAT I score of the previous year's fall semester first-time freshman admitted to the USG institution to which he or she is applying and who has completed the equivalent of each of the CPC areas as documented by a portfolio of work and/or other evidence that substantiates CPC completion qualifies for consideration for admission. For students with ACT scores, the ACT composite score comparable (according to the tables from the joint study by ACT, ETS, and the College Board) to the average SAT I total score is required. Students in this category must also meet the minimum SAT I Verbal (or ACT English) requirement and the minimum SAT I Mathematics (or ACT Math) requirement for the sector to which they apply.
