Academic Courses


    Credit Recovery courses are fast-paced, abbreviated versions of standard courses taught during the school year. They are designed for students who want to replace a failing grade or need to repeat a required core academic course. These courses are not intended to be taken for initial credit. Students may not take courses in this category if they do not already have a transcripted grade for the course. 

    When a student registers for a Credit Recovery course, the system will check to verify that the course registered for has been taken and failed previously. If the course is not found on the student’s transcript, the system will pause and present a message indicating that before proceeding with registration, approval must be granted by the student’s counselor. 

    All NCAA-registered students should see their counselor before registering for any Credit Recovery courses.
