Help for Home Schooling, Teens by THSC Webmaster

According to the NCAA, “Students who were home schooled for any part of high school (grades nine through 12) must now register with the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse. The clearinghouse will process all home-school certifications. There will no longer be the need for institutions to file initial-eligibility waivers for students who have been home schooled. Home-schooled students should register with the clearinghouse by visiting the clearinghouse Web site at Click on ‘Domestic Student Release Form’ and follow the prompts. “After registering, the home-schooled student must send the following information to the clearinghouse: · Standardized test score (must be on official transcript OR sent directly from the testing agency); · Transcript (home school transcript and any other transcript from other high schools, community colleges, etc.); · Proof of high-school graduation; · Evidence that home schooling was conducted in accordance with state law*; AND · Lists of texts used throughout home schooling (text titles, publisher, in which courses texts were used). “Because home-schooled students will not receive a preliminary evaluation from the clearinghouse, it is best to register after completion of high school (usually in late spring) when all above listed documents are available.” *THSC Association will be happy to notify the NCAA in writing that graduates of schools of member families attended home schools conducted in accordance with state law. – See more at:
