Other Admissions Details:
High School and home-school students age 16 or older and with junior or senior standing may dual enroll with permission of their high school principals (or home schooling parents) and after satisfactory completion of Thomas Nelson placement tests. Dual enrolled students are not eligible to take developmental courses nor to receive financial aid.
Students on suspension or dismissal from Thomas Nelson or any other higher education institution are not automatically admitted or readmitted. They must file an appeal and an official transcript after a waiting period. Contact the Admissions Office for details.
Under the Senior Citizen Higher Education Act of 1974, students at least 60 years of age who have been domiciled in Virginia for one year are eligible to audit up to three courses per semester free. Additionally, if their federally taxable income did not exceed $15,000 for the year preceding enrollment, they may take credit courses without cost.
The first registration date for those taking advantage of the Senior Citizens Program is published on the Academic Calendar. Please note that classes fill early and selection is limited. The college complies with the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act of 1974.
