Dual enrollment is restricted to high school juniors and seniors and home school students studying at the high school junior or senior levels. All students admitted under this section must demonstrate readiness for college, meet the applicable college placement requirements, and address all other college admission criteria. Home school students must 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. Because enrolling high school freshman and sophomore students is considered exceptional, the college ready status of each freshman and sophomore student will be treated on a case-by-case basis. Formal approval by the College president is required.
• High school students who want to attend VHCC under the Principal’s Permission provision must indicate high school status on the College application and submit a transcript of grades and have the “Principal’s Permission to Enroll” form to enroll.
• Abingdon High School uses certain criteria to identify students for dual enrollment courses. These criteria may include teacher recommendations, participation in an accelerated program, minimum grade point average, self-selection, etc. Refer http://ahs.wcs.k12.va.us/guidance.html for specific course information.
• Federal regulations do not permit financial aid to be awarded to college students who are simultaneously enrolled in public or private secondary educational programs.
