Home School Students

Students who are ages 16-18 and are not enrolled in high school may enroll in Nicolet courses, providing they meet course/ program requirements and have the written permission of their parent or guardian.

Home school students may take scheduled courses provided they:

• are at least 16 years of age
• are a Wisconsin resident

Students ages 16-18, unless they are a high school graduate, may not enroll in Adult Basic Education or adult high school course, and any courses which involve hands-on activities that take place in classroom or lab areas defined as hazardous in Chapter 70 Wisconsin Code Ind 70.03(3e). These hazardous areas would contain such things as hoists, baking equipment, firearms or explosives, manufacturing or processing equipment, or hazardous substances.

Home school students seeking admission to an academic program should apply to Nicolet College under the Declared (Program) Admissions process. Students should have a copy of their home school diploma or transcript sent directly from their home school (by the parent/principal/institutional staff) to Nicolet College. Students can also request a copy of their PI-1206 Homeschool Enrollment Report (records are kept for seven years) through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and send this to Nicolet College.
