Home School admission provides home school students the opportunity to take courses at public or private postsecondary institutions in Georgia while they are still enrolled at their home schools. They receive dual credit both at the postsecondary institutions and home school when they successfully complete coursework. Home school students wanting to enroll at Athens Technical College must be at least 16 years old, have a minimum high school grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale, and submit the necessary documentation for admission.
Home School applicants must gain regular admission status to enroll at the college. Home school students whose test scores place them in learning support coursework are not eligible to enroll at the college. Home School students must complete the New Student Orientation and Registration prior to registering for the first semester at the college.
