Prop 48 and Prop 16 would require 13 credits, 2.0 or 2.5 gpa plus a qualifying SAT score dependent on the gpa. If Hassan needs more than that then his high school courses probably don't meet NCAA clearing house requirements, which means he's got a lot of remedial work to do.
Given he's been out of high school a year already, I wonder if he spent a year on remedial work just to get into Snow and now needs 13 credits, qualifying GPA and enterance exam.
Most community colleges have a lot more relaxed admittance standards. For example CSI, if you graduated from high school or have a GED, you need to take a qualifying exam (typically compass test) and for the most part you are set to go. Most college incidentally will admit you with lack of admittance requirements, if you are less than full time. However as a scholarshipped athlete, you don't have that option.
If he had spent the last year in say a prep school making up those deficient credits he would have been eligible per NCAA clearning house to re submit his application for college readiness. As I noted above, non qualifiers must graduate or in some cases accumulate enough credits for graduation before being eligible to return to a NCAA clearinghouse school.
