I have a Software engineering project in the near future in which a couple of students will be working on. I would like to host the database and maybe a source control server on my Local PC with hopes that the other classmates would be able to retrieve all of the information. I was looking into subversion for the version control software. I have sql server 2008 r2 right now. How would i make it to where I/ others can access the database on my computer without being on my network? Any information would be GREAT

If you have any resources at all, I would strongly consider setting up this server separately from your personal PC - if possible use some sort of hosting service outside of your home network, as suggested by Joe Internet in the comments above. You'll learn a lot about how these things are done in the real world, and will not be opening up a hole to your personal systems.
