Every situation is unique, but my money is on your son still having to show some kind of equivalency, particularly for a dual Bachelor's/Master's program. They won't accept kids who can't do the work. Even genius-level kids need to take the placement tests to show they can handle it.My son is currently finishing his second year of college and is concurrently enrolled in a masters program after taking one year in high school and does not have a hs degree. I’m sure it’s very different for athletes to qualify to play but a diploma is unquestionably not required to be accepted at a university.
