Granting Credit for Off-Campus Educational Experiences
Credit will be granted for off-campus educational experiences. Prior approval for such credit must be obtained from the student's counselor after consultation with the student and parent. Off-campus credit is granted by the school and is evaluated on an individual basis. Any expense involved in off-campus educational experiences (except for Early College Credit and Start College Now) must be paid by the student. (See Guidance course section.)
The High School Course Description Guide gives detailed requirements for prerequisites in every subject area. A student may not be denied the opportunity to enroll in a course on the basis of a mark in a prerequisite course unless that mark is a failure. RUSD offers dual credit opportunities. Please check the Course Description Guide for more information.
For more information, please review Administrative Regulation 6142.12, Granting Credit for Off-Campus Educational Experience.
