Will the foreign language courses taught in a home education program meet the requirement for admission to a Florida public university?
No. A student is required to have successfully completed 2 years of language in a Florida high school or 2 semesters at a Florida college. The foreign language requirement must be met through courses taken in a public or private school, the Florida Virtual School (FLVS) or in a Florida college.* Some universities may accept a passing score on CLEP tests, however, you will need to check with the institution your child plans to attend.
If the courses are taken through dual enrollment or after high school graduation, the 2 semesters will be counted as electives.
*A Florida university may accept foreign language from an accredited out-of-state high school or college, however, before you register for the course be sure to check the requirement of the Florida university your child hopes to attend.
