Homeschooling Policy

All Homeschooled students without a high school diploma or GED are eligible to apply for admission to a degree or certificate program provided they have successfully completed an approved home- school program in accordance with Massachusetts General Laws or the laws of their home state. If a homeschooled student has not completed an approved homeschool program, the student will not be eligible to enroll in a degree or certificate program until he/she has earned a General Education Development (GED) equivalency certificate. As high school students may self-certify their completion of a public or private high school program, homeschooled students may self-certify their completion of an approved home-school program.

So that the College may determine whether a student has participated in an approved home- school program, the student shall submit, with the application for admission, evidence that the homeschool program was approved by the student’s school district’s superintendent or school committee. Additionally, if the homeschooled student is under the age of compulsory attendance, which is sixteen (16) years old in Massachusetts, a letter from the student’s school district’s superintendent or school committee is required stating that the student is not considered truant and would not be required to attend further schooling or continue to be homeschooled if the student has completed his/her home school program before the age of sixteen (16).

The College reserves the right to limit or deny enrollment of a student under the age of sixteen (16) in a course or program based on its case-by- case consideration of a variety of factors, including but not limited to the student’s maturity, life experience, placement test scores, prior education, course content, instructional methodology, and risks associated with a particular course or program.
