A student who is two or more years older than the average student of his/her grade level will not be admitted. (Grade level will be determined in junior high by the courses passed and in high school by the Carnegie credits earned.)

Transfer students will be required to disclose any previous disciplinary action that resulted in suspensions, expulsion, illegal drug use, arrests, or probation. Transfer students will also be required to provide copies of any educational, psychological or psychiatric evaluations. Failing to properly report such information could result in the student's rejection for admission or expulsion. Students who indicate a previous involvement with illegal drugs must voluntarily submit to drug testing. The administrator will retain the right to reject any applicant whose previous disciplinary record indicates a potential hazard to the school.

In the event of extenuating circumstances (death in family, family illness, etc.), which may impact admission criteria, the head of school will have the authority to determine admission.

Transfer students who are ineligible for promotion or for class credit at their former school will not be eligible for promotion or credit at Tallulah Academy/Delta Christian.
