Homeschool College - Do Community Colleges Accept CLEP Credits?

Homeschool College - Do Community Colleges Accept CLEP Credits?
I received this message about CLEP credits from a homeschooling parent:"In Florida, the state universities have a reciprocal policy with the community colleges if you complete your AA. So, we'll probably go that route and do his AA via CLEP and dual enrollment."Earning an AA through CLEP credits and dual enrollment wasn't the route we took, but it may work for you. It turned out that our community college would not accept more than 2 CLEP...

Can I Use MIT's Open Courseware to Homeschool College?

Can I Use MIT's Open Courseware to Homeschool College?
Has anyone homeschooled college using things such as MIT's Open Courseware, and would completing courses through this be an acceptable path?~Stephanie on Facebook To get college credit while you homeschool ("homeschooling college") requires credits to be accredited by some organization (like CLEP) or some college (like Thomas Edison.)

  • Making School Fun

    I tried to incorporate games into our homeschool whenever possible, in order to make school fun. We played math games, art games, and economics games.
