- Students will be given the opportunity to earn up to 1.0 transferable credit or two semesters of coursework. Note that all coursework must be completed by the final deadline of July 31, 2020. If a student wishes to complete two semesters of coursework, the second semester course may begin after June 25, 2020, but no later than July 6, 2020.
- Online teachers grade and provide feedback within an average time of 24 hours. Plan accordingly. All online coursework must be submitted and graded before approval is given to complete the final exam.

The performance portion can be completed at home, while the discussion portion will be completed with your teacher via video conferencing software.
