If youre serious about pursuing a college education, then we want to make every effort to provide you the opportunity, even if you don't have a diploma or GED. Special approvals typically fall into two categories:
If you're 18 or older you may be unconditionally admitted if you can prove your ability to successfully complete college courses. To do so, simply take the COMPASS test and meet the minimum passing ability-to-benefit scores. Of course, you’ll need to complete all other admission requirements.
If you do not reach the ability-to-benefit scores on the COMPASS, you still may be eligible for conditional admission based on special circumstances.
If you're not a high school graduate or the equivalent, you may be admitted conditionally. We would just need to examine your academic record and your scores on assessment tests to determine if we think you could succeed in one of San Jac's programs. Admission would be for one term, and we may require you to take certain courses or limit those that you can register for.
Conditions for students 18 or older
Conditions for students under 18
Of course, if you're approved under special circumstances you’ll still need to complete all other admission requirements. Once you achieve unconditional admission status you'll be eligible to receive an official transcript, be considered for financial aid, and re-enroll for subsequent terms. In short, you'll be an all-out college student!
