College Admission Requirements

Students need to be aware that course selections in high school impact his/her options after high school.  Each technical school, college, or university has certain admission requirements and it is expected that students successfully complete the requirements for technical school, college or university of his/her choice.

Students have the option to earn college credit while in high school.  Students planning on attending college after high school may choose to take advantage of the different options that Boone Central offers.

Online College Classes – Students meeting specific criteria and on track for graduation may enroll in an online college class through Central Community College. Students are allowed one period per college class in which they are enrolled to work on their class.  Students have the opportunity to earn up to 12 credit hours, providing they earn an “A”, “B”, or “C” in each class.  Students are responsible for paying for tuition and books for these classes.  Students do not earn high school credit from Boone Central for these classes. It is highly recommended that students check with the technical school, college, or university they plan to attend to ensure that credits will transfer.

Dual Credit – Students have the opportunity to earn Boone Central credit and as well as college credit at the same time. Boone Central has agreements with Central Community College and Nebraska Wesleyan University to give students the chance to fulfill general education requirements they would have to take in college.  It is highly recommended that students check with the technical school, college, or university they plan to attend to ensure that credits will transfer. Students must complete dual credit classes with an “A”, “B”, or “C” to earn college credit.  Students are responsible for tuition for the college credits, but Boone Central provides the books.

Central Community offers college credit for Advanced Biology and English 12.  Nebraska Wesleyan University offers college credit for American History, World History and Calculus.
