Amend Bylaws Article V, Section C, Item 2, Note 2 as follows:

NOTE 2:  Home-schooled Students

For tests taken beginning May 2019, Hhome-schooled students who complete a home schooling program conducted in accordance with the laws of the student’s state of residence and achieve a minimum score of 1820 on the ACT or 9501040 (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math) on the SAT will meet entering freshmen requirements.

For ACT tests taken prior to March 2016, a minimum score of 20 is required. For ACT tests taken beginning March 2016 through April 2019, a minimum score of 18 will satisfy this requirement. For ACT tests taken prior to March 2016, a minimum score of 20 is required. For SAT tests taken prior to May 2019, a minimum score of 950 (Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math) is required. This criteria will apply through the 2018-19 academic year, after which time testing requirements for freshman eligibility will be reevaluated.

Any student who completes a home schooling program, conducted in accordance with the laws of the student’s state of residence, may request a home school waiver from the NAIA Home School Committee if the student fails to achieve the required test scores. A student receiving a home school waiver will be recognized as meeting entering freshman requirements. The Council of Faculty Athletics Representatives shall establish policy governing the issuance of a home school waiver by the NAIA Home School Committee.

Intent: To adopt an ACT test score of 20 and SAT test score of 1040 as the minimum acceptable scores a home-schooled student may use on test taken beginning May 2019 to receive an eligible decision without obtaining a waiver from the NAIA Home School Committee.
