Admissions Requirements for Home School Graduates
A North Carolina home school administrator must show and provide proof that the home school is certified by the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education. This means that the administrator must have a school approval number (if available), a charter for the school, or anything that denotes approval from the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education, and provide copies of this information with the application.
The home school administrator must also provide an official home school transcript indicating the graduation date and completed courses. If the home school administrator does not have an official transcript, a Transcript Form is available in the Admissions Office at Forsyth Tech. The transcript has to be complete before it is considered acceptable.
If the home school administrator and/or the student does not have the proper certification, the student cannot be accepted to a curriculum program at Forsyth Tech. The student must obtain a High School Equivalency or adult high school (AHS) diploma from Forsyth Tech’s Economic & Workforce Development program before being eligible to register for a curriculum program. If the student is 18 years of age or older, they are eligible to register as a special credit student. If the student is 18 years of age or older, they are eligible to register as a special credit student.
