Getting a college degree is no longer as complicated as it once was. In fact if you have been homeschooling your child to protect him or her from catty cliques and brutish behavior in regular schools, you may not be so comfortable sending them to regular college as well. In this case you can prepare your homeschool high school student to apply for his college degree online or via distance education.
Pick the program This is decided primarily by what your child is interested in pursuing higher education in. Many factors will have to be considered including the application of the college degree in the life of the home school student. Is the purpose of getting a college degree to improve job prospects? Then consider the course programs that besides being of interest to him are also likely to have lucrative jobs.
Pick the college The reputation of the college is paramount. You need to get the degree for your homeschool student from a well respected college. Use forums to find out about the professors at the college and the average level of satisfaction that current students have regarding the study material and running of the course. The length of the course and the cost of tuition are also important factors to consider. Compare the tuition fees of the same program at other colleges as well.
Prepare for the admission process Each college has its own requirements and you will need to get acquainted with them. Some may require standard test results for SAT to be submitted along with the admission form. Others may need the detailed portfolio of the home school student to be submitted so that they can establish the student's level of accomplishment. Other legal requirements may also have to be met. These details are easily accessed via the university's website.
It would be a good idea to get in touch with guidance counselors at the college to help understand all the admission and course requirements. Some offer a hybrid distance learning program where you study the bulk of your lessons at home but can come into the college and interact with the professors and other students in set time periods. This could also be a good idea for your homeschool student.
