How to correctly fill our application as a high school home school graduate
Hi! I am trying to correctly fill out the application as a recent home school high school graduate and first time college student. I was home schooled all 4 years and have been a CA resident all my life. My parents filed their own Private School Affidavit. I completed all state and home school requirements for graduation (26 units). I was issued a diploma by my home school. When filling out the Education section of the CCC application I am confused as to what I should enter since the application revokes the answers I think I should be putting.
- Under "High School Education" it will not allow me to select "Received a high school diploma from a U.S. school" and that "I was independently home schooled." Your program says this information conflicts. I went to a private home school filed with the California CDE in the United States, so I don't understand why this does not apply. The only option that seems to allow me to move forward is "Passed a high school equivalency test and received a certificate of high school equivalency". This does not seem accurate though since I have a diploma.
- I cannot select that I attended high school in CA for 3 or more years and select that I was independently home schooled. Your program says this information conflicts. I resided and attended my private home school for all of my education, including my 4 years of high school.
Please advise me on how I should fill out your application correctly so that it reflects my education. Thank you very much!
