Can you still go to college if you attened a private church school, that did not have accreditation?
This question has been answered numerous times on Yahoo!Answers with reference to home school students.
Yes. Colleges will accept you if you meet their other requirements.
How do you think that students from other countries get into college in the U.S.? Do you think that their schools are accredited by our country? Think about it.
Provided you are well prepared for you SAT or ACT test you probably won’t need a GED. Your knowledge will get you in.
Also, colleges do see unaccredited transcripts all the time, both from church schools and from homeschooling parents, it usually isn’t a problem to get admitted. A few colleges will ask for GED, but most won’t if you’ve done well on the SAT or ACT test, and have taken the classes they like to see highschoolers take. (This differs from school to school, but most colleges like to see a minimum of 3 credits in math, many prefer 4, 3 credits in science, again many prefer 4, and 4 credits in English, as well as extracurricular activities and electives.)
I also personally know a homeschooler who won the National Merit Scholarship, and others who have gotten financial aid. I don’t know if they needed the GED or not. In general, if the school requires the GED go ahead and take it, if not then skip it.
Check with the college of your choice, and take it from there.
You can also take a few courses at a local college, and transfer the credits.
Also, take the S.A.T.’s. I think the SAT is based on 2400 now, so I would imagine 1500 is average.. but I really don’t know.
Obviously, the better you do on these, the more likely you are to get into school.
*** Silly thumbs down: I am assuming you want to go to college as a matriculated student, which in the U.S. means you either need a diploma or a G.E.D. to attend a four year institution.
