What home school courses may be used to meet the core-course requirements?

Future student-athlete frequently asked questions

 

Answer:

In Division I, generally only courses completed in grades nine through 12 (eight semesters) may be used in a student’s initial-eligibility certification. However, if the student has graduated on time after the eighth semester of high school, one core-course unit taken prior to initial full-time collegiate enrollment may be used to meet the core-course requirements.

In Division II, a student may use all core courses completed prior to initial full-time collegiate enrollment (regardless of when he or she graduates) to meet the core-curriculum requirements.

A college course taken during high school by a home schooled student may be used to meet the core-course requirement, provided:

  1. The course is placed on the home high school transcript with grade and credit awarded; 
  2. The name of the college/university where the course was completed is designated clearly on the home school transcript and the location (city and state) is also included; 
  3. The course would be accepted for any other student; and
  4. The course meets all requirements to be considered a core course.

For both divisions, pre-ninth grade courses may also be used, provided they meet core-course requirements and are placed on the home school transcript with a grade and credit. If the course was completed via home school, a core-course worksheet will be required. (Note: Courses with credits awarded through credit-by-exam will not be used to meet core-course requirements.)
