(Already published on 3/11/01 via HeirUpdates e-mail list)There is recent news that may indicate a change in Board of Regents admission policies for homeschoolers. This news report will be available on the HEIR website (www.heir.org) where it may be easier to read.
This morning, Mr. Tom Daniel and Mr. Daniel Papp from the Board of Regents appeared at my request before the Richmond County Legislative Delegation on the subject of Home School Students.
Mr. Daniel and Mr. Papp, assured the delegation that the scores from the previous years' Scholastic Aptitude Test and the proper Education credentials would be sufficient requirements necessary for admission to the Tier 1 Universities in the system. The SAT II test will not be required.
I am enclosing a copy of the Paths for Admission to the University System as provided to me. Should you have any questions, please telephone me.
Paths to Consideration for AdmissionThere are five paths to consideration for admission at University System of Georgia colleges and universities for home schooled students.
University System of Georgia Colleges and Universities
Home Schooled Students
Students whose SAT I Composite (Verbal and Math) score is at or above the average SAT score of first-time freshmen admitted to USG institutions in the prior calendar year and who have completed a CPC as validated either by a portfolio of work that substantiates CPC completion, the Iowa Test for Academic Proficiency, The California Achievement Test, or the Stanford Achievement Test.
SAT II Subject Tests
The tests and approved BoR passing scores are:
This category allows presidents of institutions to make exceptions to regular admissions requirements.
Diploma from a regionally accredited home study program such as the American School or the Seton Home Study School.
Diploma from the Center of the Accrediting Council for Independent Study (Georgia only).
No path to consideration for admission guarantees admission to a University System of Georgia institution. The final decision on an admission application is made at the institutional level. Any USG institution may establish additional requirements.
