********************************************

The CHASC membership year runs from June 1 to May 31 of each school year.  Membership will expire on May 31.

Completion and renewal forms must be filed online between May 1 and May 31.

All members must file a completion form for the previous school year, even if they are not renewing for the upcoming year for any reason.  Students who graduate will not be in compliance or receive any supporting letters of membership without this last filing.  This will put college applications and scholarships in danger, so please do not forget to file!

For graduating seniors, all forms must be filed by May 15 at the very latest. Some colleges may have earlier deadlines for paperwork and transcripts, so be sure to stay in touch with your college and find out all dates and deadlines as soon as possible. Due to the Commission on Higher Education deadlines for scholarships, seniors who may qualify for HOPE, LIFE, or Palmetto Fellows Scholarships must file their course and grade information or sign a waiver/declination form stating you do not wish to apply for these scholarships now or in the future. Seniors who miss the May 15 filing deadline will not qualify and must sign the declination form.

A grace period of three business days may be applied by CHASC for filing forms, however, this is not true of colleges or the Commission of Higher Education, so even if your membership is deemed compliant, you may fail to receive scholarship funds by missing this date if you have a graduating senior. There can be NO grace period applied to the May 15 deadline for graduating seniors.

Any changes in contact information or student status must be reported within 3 business days from the date of the changes.  This is done by sending an email noting the change to the CHASC email address: ChristianHomeschoolersAssoc@gmail.com.
