Information for Homeschool Families
CVCC is pleased to offer parents and home school students the opportunity earn college credit while
completing their secondary school requirements or to supplement educational activities provided through
the home school provider.
To expedite the process of becoming enrolling at CVCC please follow these steps:
- Fill out an application for admission
to the college if you are new to CVCC
- Take the placement test in the Counseling Center or at an off-site
center. (you may meet with a counselor first to learn more about this
if you wish)
- After the placement test, if you are under the age of 16, you will
then need to meet with the Vice-President of Academic Affairs and Student Services. If
you are over 16, you may skip this step and simply meet with the academic counselor.
- You and the counselor will work out an appropriate class schedule
consistent with your placement test scores.
- Take the Enrollment Change Form along with the permission letter from
the state or local school district to the Admissions Office where you will be enrolled
and given a copy of your class schedule.
- Be sure to observe the 'pay date' for each semester. Remember students
are only pre-enrolled until the classes are paid for.
- Be aware that as a college student, you must sign a Release of
Academic Information form in order for your parents to have access to your academic
records or speak to a college employee on your behalf.
