Dual enrollment student admissions

Student Services Policy 80370

1. Purpose

1.1 This policy shall establish the process for dual enrollment student admission to Germanna Community College.

2. Policy

2.1 Although high school and home school students are normally not qualified for general admission, colleges may offer admission to those students who meet additional criteria.  Dual enrollment is restricted to high school juniors and seniors and home school students studying at the high school junior or senior levels. Home school students must also provide a copy of a home school agreement approved by the school district or a letter from the local school board or a copy of the letter filed by the parent/legal guardian declaring home school for religious exemption. Documentation of parental permission is required for all dual enrollment students.

3. Procedure

3.1 Because admitting freshmen and sophomores is considered exceptional, the college ready status of each prospective freshman and sophomore student will be treated on a case-by-case basis. Formal approval by the college president is required for admitting freshmen or sophomores.

3.2 All students admitted under this section must demonstrate readiness for college by meeting the criteria below.

Students enrolling in a dual enrollment course must meet all course prerequisites.
