Minor Admissions

A student who is between 16 and 18 years of age and determined to have “special needs” by the local school system may be enrolled in VGCC’s Adult Learning Center and community-based classes if certain special conditions are met. The local public or private school where the student would normally attend assists in the decision to determine if admission to the Adult Learning Center is an educational option for the student. All students in this category must attend an orientation session with a parent or legal guardian. The Adult Learning Center coordinator or Adult Basic Skills instructional staff must conclude after reviewing the student application and receiving appropriate enrollment documentation that he/she is mature enough to benefit from an adult instructional setting. 

Each “special needs” applicant must submit a School Release form, signed by the school principal and district superintendent. In addition, a notarized “Parent’s Consent” form must be signed by the parent or legal
guardian. Also, the student’s parent/guardian must sign an Adult Basic Skills Program Agreement. Each "special needs" student (minor) and parent/guardian must attend a session available on each campus to discuss
information relevant to admission to Basic Skills Program.
