UTAH ONLINE SCHOOL SUMMER PROGRAM
What Happens if I Fail a Class?
If you fail a class, then you usually must make it up by completing the term again as CREDIT RECOVERY. Credit Recovery is a shorter version of the same class and earns a student a P grade plus the lost credit. Each term of credit recovery is equal to 0.25 credit in the subject.
- Example: John B failed English Term 4 in 10th grade. He has passed all other classes. John B has to make up Term 4 English 10 through Credit Recovery in order to graduate.
- Once he completes credit recovery, there will be an entry on his Transcript showing CR English 10 T4, P as his grade, and now he's earned the missing 0.25 English credits.
What Are My Options for Doing Credit Recovery?
Here are Two Options We Think Work Best for Students:
- Utah Online School: Students pay $50/session (usually 7-9 weeks) & then complete as many credit recovery terms as they can in that session. We like this option because it's economical AND students can sometimes cancel out work by doing well on unit tests.
- Northridge Learning Center: Private school that sells PAPER PACKETS for Credit Recovery. Each 0.25 (Term) credit = $50 (Other fees may apply, such as Retest Fee, Extension Fee, etc.) Students complete the packet by the deadline and then take a PROCTORED FINAL EXAM. This can get expensive if a student has multiple terms to make up.
- There are other Credit Recovery providers (ex. BYU Independent Study). Just make sure to use an ACCREDITED PROGRAM.
What if I NEVER Make Up my Credits?
You will not graduate because you'll be missing credits required for graduation.
- All Credit Recovery must be completed by May 1st of SENIOR YEAR at the latest
- Students who have not completed all credit recovery will not participate in Graduation Ceremonies
- Students can continue to work until Sep of their 12th grade year and can pick up their diploma once these are completed.
- If students don't complete all credit recovery by September, they must finish their diploma through Adult Education
