Are You an Assertive Homeschooler?

It never hurts to ask.  If you are denied admission because of homeschooling, be assertive, and ask tough questions!  Socially active parents can change admission policy, as I have written in the past.  If you get a barricade, and it looks like bricks, it may not be an impenetrable as it appears. Ask questions.  See second opinions.  Demonstrate facts.  Don't panic!



I am planning on attending Technical College in January, but unfortunately the women over admissions is telling me my senior transcript has to be accredited. I won't graduate until December this year, she said I'd have till the summer to get my senior transcript in. This women told me I had to send my records to an accredit agency for them to certify and make me one. Is this correct? I am so confused. Please help me.
Thanks, Samantha

I have not heard that from a community college.  One time I did hear that about a beauty school applicant.  Talk to someone else in the admission department.  If they put their foot down, there is the option of a GED®.  You can switch to a different college that doesn't have the requirement.  You can also present test scores or other alternatives instead.   Here is my article about accreditation:
Homeschool Accreditation Don't Ask Don't Tell
Thank you so much for replying back to me. I became very stubborn with the college and we called different admission people in the building and we were delighted to get the phone call today that they would except a typed transcript from my mom. My prayers were definitely answered!
Thanks Samantha

If this homeschool student can stand firm and get results, I bet you can too!

Good to know that being assertive can get things done. Our 16yr old begins Running Start at the community college in one week and I was concerned, because we don't have a transcript typed up. They let her in based strictly on her admissions testing scores with no additional documentation required. I was surprised, but they said if she places into the college level courses for math & English, and she's 16 and a Junior, then she's in. She placed just fine!
