The Design Your Plan pages for Charter Oak and Thomas Edison are complete.
A surprising number of people find HC USA while searching for the free PASS textbooks. I'm guessing this means they are still unavailable online in the "usual" places. If you want copies of these free books - they're in PDF form - you can still try this (taken from the old blog): You may request your free copy [of the CD-ROMs with the student and teacher editions] by sending your full name and mailing address to: BRIC@fldoe.org. You do NOT have to be a Florida resident to request these books. They cover mostly core subjects in middle and high school, with a handful of electives.
If that doesn't work, please let me know through the CONTACT page and I will edit this post and talk with you privately about how to get copies. (Perfectly legally! It's just something I have been asked not to publicly post.)
The Design Your Plan section is still under construction. I have also added some information about financial aid, including what to do if you college of choice (mistakenly) tells you that you must have an accredited diploma or GED in order to collect federal financial aid and how to use a Pell Grant to pay for a 4-year degree with little to no out-of-pocket expenses on your part.
Edited because while Deisgn looks like it might be the name of a really funky German car, I really did mean Design.
I've added a page about financial aid under the High School Studies tab.
Also, I've begun work on the Design Your Plan section.
If you are new here, don't forget you can still visit the current Homeschool College USA site to find the electives subject pages that I still haven't transferred over.
ETA: Finished the FAQ page.
If you somehow got here from somewhere other than www.homeschoolcollegeusa.com, you might be a bit perplexed by the blank pages. This site is still under construction, but will *hopefully* be fully completed by the end of this month.
5/4/2013: ETA - Or, er... by about May 10th...ish?
At some point, I started to write a book about homeschooling your way through college. The problem was every time I thought I was close to finished, something would change and I'd need to edit a page or two. Or an entire chapter. I finally realized a book simply wasn't practical and sticking with an easy-to-update website makes the most sense.
When TESC announced they were aligning with LEAP, my first thought was, "Why?" This was followed up almost immediately by, "Good thing I never published that book last year." Heh. :)
It seems to be taking me quite a bit of time to get the new site finished. My goal is to have it done and launched by the end of this month. That may be overly optimistic, but, hey... who needs sleep anyway, right?
Hmmm. The first HC USA blog was hosted by Blogger. The second was part of the old HC USA site, once I switched over to Weebly for hosting. This blog is also through Weebly, but is now part of the new HC USA. I suspect the second blog may get lost in the wilderness of the world-wide web once I transfer the URL name over to this site, but I won't know for sure until it happens.
