Help Understanding the Law...

It's been a very long day full of homeschooling research so my brain is pretty fried. I could use your help understanding this piece of the New York state home schooling regulations...

The IHIP should include....


"a statement that the child will be meeting the compulsory educational requirements of Education Law, section 3205 through full-time study at a degree-granting institution, meaning enrollment for at least 12 semester hours in a semester or its equivalent, if that is the case. In this situation, the IHIP shall identify the degree-granting institution and the subjects to be covered by that study."

What exactly does this mean in laymans terms? I guess I'm just stuck on the "degree-granting institution" part and I would love clarification on what exactly that is referring to...

Thank you in advance!

I would imagine an accredited school of some sort....but I'm not too familiar with New York's laws.

This part only applies to full-time college attendance by a child who is still compulsory attendance age (which is rare).
