Technical College Admissions Policy

ADMISSION POLICY CHANGES FOR TECHNICAL COLLEGES

 

 

There have been some very positive changes in the admission policy of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). These changes make it much easier for homeschool graduates with non-accredited diplomas to gain admission to a Georgia Technical College.

 

GHEA has been in contact with Nichole Kennedy, E.d.D., L.P.C., the Executive Director for Student Affairs for the Technical College System of Georgia. She has been very helpful in making sure that the homeschoolers of Georgia are aware of this new policy.

 

This new policy reads as follows:

 

Applicants of home schools located in Georgia who did not attend a recognized accredited program must adhere to the following alternative path for admission:

·        Submit a Certificate of Attendance form from the local superintendent’s office or Georgia Department of Education verifying that (1) the parent or legal guardian notified the superintendent of intent to home school and (2) that the parent or legal guardian submitted the required attendance reports as required by O.C.G.A. § 20-2-690.

·        Submit annual progress reports or a final transcript for the equivalent of the home-schooled student’s junior and senior years.  The final progress report should include the graduation date.

It is very important that the student have this documentation. The only proof of compliance with Georgia's homeschool law are official copies of the Letter of Intent and Attendance forms from the local superintendent's office or the State Department of Education. The original or a copy of the Letter of Intent and Attendance forms from the parent's files will not be accepted.

 

It is a good idea for parents to ask for official copies of these documents when their student graduates even if you think you do not need them. You may in the future and it may be difficult if not impossible to get them at a later date.

 

The Association will serve and assist any home schooling family or support group in Georgia, however, GHEA is a Christian organization and the counsel and direction of the organization will be Christian.
