Q: Can my student earn high school credit for courses taken through Ignite Learning?

A: Ignite Learning is only available for non-diploma-seeking students, and participants will not receive high school credit from their School of Enrollment.

Q: Am I required to take the ACT before applying?

A: No. The ACT is not a prerequisite to enroll in the Ignite Learning Early College Program.

Q: Will my credits transfer to other universities?

A: Every university has different policies governing the acceptance of transferred college credits. Check with the admissions department at the university to which you would like to attend and ask about Southeastern University.

Q: Can students take Ignite Learning courses in any order, or are they “unlocked” sequentially?

A: Students can progress through the courses in any order; however, some individual courses may require a prerequisite.

Q: When do my college credits become available?

A: Students of any age may complete college coursework as long as they meet the college's admissions requirements. However, until a student has completed high school, they are typically enrolled as non-degree-seeking at that institution.

Once an early college student has completed high school (documented by either an accredited diploma or a homeschool transcript), they qualify to be enrolled as degree-seeking, and the credits they have previously earned officially count toward their degree.
