Tips for homeschool students

As you consider entering an online college classroom, we have a few tips to make this transition smooth and successful.

Selecting a Propero course 

We want you to be successful and placed in an academically appropriate course. While this is a guide, it is based on nationally recognized scores for dual-credit, high school students.  Students should be in 11th or 12th grade, following an advanced path.

ACT Score Guide
English Composition I English score 18 or higher
College Algebra Math score 22 or higher
Social Science/ Humanities Reading score  21 or higher
Introduction to Biology Science  score 24 or higher
SAT Score Guide
English Composition I English 440 or higher
College Algebra Math 520 or higher

Statistics, Accounting, Macro or Microeconomics-student should have successfully completed College Algebra. English Composition II–student should have successfully completed English Composition I.

Establish good time management and study habits

Students in college courses need to be self-motivated and able to plan and follow through with their work schedule. You will need to set up a study schedule for your Propero course. Generally, you should be completing one lesson per week. Propero courses include a pace chart that can help you manage your time and plan what work needs to be completed every week. Even though you can work at your own pace, self-paced does not mean no pace.
