Freed-Hardeman University is launching an online dual-enrollment program designed specifically for homeschooled juniors and seniors, according to Joe Askew, admissions director. Dubbed FHU @ Home, the program is set to offer its first courses fall 2013.
Dual enrollment courses permit students to earn college and high school credit simultaneously. Homeschooled students must have a minimum composite ACT score of 21 with at least a 22 in reading and in math, along with a high school grade-point average of 3.0 in order to enroll. Applications for admission to FHU, transcripts and ACT scores are due July 1.
Courses to be offered include American History, English Composition, Music Appreciation, General Psychology, College Algebra and Principles of Biology. Classes, taught by the FHU faculty, will coincide with the dates of on-campus semesters.
Cost for a three-hour course is $550. Students in certified Tennessee umbrella programs may apply for a state grant to cover $300 of the course cost. Free online tutoring via WebEx, Skype and FaceTime will be offered as a part of the program.
The program also includes free seminars conducted in conjunction with various campus events such as RUSH, Homecoming, Lectureship and Makin' Music. Students who enroll in a minimum of four courses and attend two of the seminars will be eligible for a $1,000 scholarship for their full-time enrollment at FHU.
