Can my student earn college credit during high school if they are homeschooled?

Yes! College level courses taken at your local college will not only satisfy high school requirements, but will give your student college credit thus benefitting your student’s GPA. Students may also receive college credit through distance learning, advanced placement equivalency exams, and through CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) tests. However, for CLEP tests, each institution sets its own standard for what constitutes a passing grade.

Do homeschool students qualify for South Carolina college scholarships?

Yes! Homeschoolers are eligible for the same state scholarships for which public or private school students qualify. You can find details on the Palmetto Fellows Scholoarship, LIFE Scholarship, HOPE Scholarship and others at the South Carolina Commission of Higher Education.
