Correspondence Courses 

(Classes outside of West High)

The TUSD school board policy allows students to earn up to 40 credits for advancement toward graduation through outside educational providers over the four years of high school. However, courses are limited to a maximum of 10 credits per academic discipline (English, Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, World Language, and Fine Art) if they will be applied towards graduation requirements. For credit to be accepted, the following are required:

  • The Correspondence Course Pre-Approval Request form is signed by the student and parent/guardian prior to a student enrolling in the off-campus course.  Otherwise, the course will not be recorded on the high school transcript.
  • The provider where the course is taken must be WASC accredited.
  • The student shall receive the same letter grade for high school credit as is granted by the educational provider.
  • Upon completion of the course, the student must submit an official transcript to their counselor showing the student successfully completed the course.  Once received, the course, grade, and credits will be added to their TUSD transcript.
