Dual Enrollment with Bryan College is open to high school students who are homeschooled sophomores, juniors, or seniors.
Sophomores must have at least a 3.5 high school GPA.

Note: Dual Enrollment is available to students in all states, EXCEPT CALIFORNIA. (California doesn't allow out-of-state college credit delivery to their residents.) All other states have signed a "reciprocity agreement" and so they can offer education between states. California was the only hold-out.
Students are limited to 12 semester hours through Bryan College during the regular fall and spring semesters. (Paint Your Way Through Art History is a 2 credit hour course.)

HOW IS THEIR ART GRADED?
For the fine arts dual enrollment, they will make a video or use a free portfolio website to show me their artwork. That will be due the last week of class. (I’ll give them lots of info and guidance on how to do it.)
Their art work will be graded based on the percent complete. So if they have 90% of the assignments complete, they’d get a 90. I then give extra points if I see that they’ve gone beyond expectations in any way: getting creative, putting in extra time, or showing improvement.
Dual enrolled students will need to complete each project as they go. I really encourage them to finish one before the next class…so if they can plan an extra art session during the week, they’ll be fine. (If they put one off and catch up later, it’s not a big deal, but if they put them all off, that will be too much to do the night before the portfolio is due.) Students who don’t do dual enrollment aren’t under any pressure to finish…they sometimes finish some projects over Christmas break.
