- Counselor/Principal pre-approval is required for all outside credit options including those completed by middle school students; approval will not be granted retroactively. Once approved, the student must complete the course within the time designated by the counselor.
- Students may earn outside credits through the following two options: Issaquah School District Online Learning (letter grade A-F earned) and/or Other Outside Credit Options (Pass/Fail only). The maximum combined credits a student may earn toward graduation requirements and/or minimum college admission requirements is 4 credits (8 semesters). A maximun of 2 credits (4 semesters) can be taken in one school year.
- Important: To preserve the integrity of the requirements, no more than 50% in any one discipline may be earned outside of a regularly scheduled “inside credit” high school course.
- The District shall not, in any way, be responsible for determining if an outside course meets a specific college requirement, an NCAA requirement, or is accepted by agencies who grant scholarships. Parents and students are solely responsible for vetting these courses and for the resulting consequences.
- Credit will be granted for completed pre-approved outside courses, and placed on the official high school transcript. The process for grading will depend on type of outside credit pursued. See details below.
