SDUHSD Policy on Off-Campus Classes
San Dieguito Union High School District has changed its policy for students taking courses at HBA and other private schools. We wanted to explain how this may affect students wanting to take our courses. Please see your high school counselor for approval before enrolling in our classes if you would like to transfer the credit.
1. Students will still be able to take three classes (30 units) off-campus credit to be transferred to their school transcript and used toward high school graduation requirements.
High School graduation requirements for SDUHSD:
4 years of English
3 years of Math (must pass IM 1 to graduate)
3 years of Social Studies
2 years of laboratory science (one life science, one physical science)
1 year of Visual/Performing Arts (VPA)
1 year of Career/Technical Ed (CTE)
230 Total units
Any classes not required for graduation may be put on a separate transcript and sent to colleges. For example, foreign language, a third year of science, a fourth year of math).
2. Only one class per subject area can be transferred. So only Biology or Chemistry, not both. There may be some flexibility for individuals with special circumstances.
Since the district only requires two years of lab science to graduate, Physics, AP Phyiscs 1 and 2, AP Chemistry and Environmental Science can be taken and sent directly to colleges. It is not necessary to put them on the TP or CCA transcripts.
3. When remediating a D or F outside the district, the school will put both grades on the transcript and therefore they will be averaged in the GPA.
Most colleges, however, will take the higher grade and recalculate the GPA.
“For freshman applicants, if the same (or very similar in content) course in which a D or F grade was originally earned is repeated and a grade of C or better is earned, the original grade will not be included in the GPA calculation.”
Enter only information for the course in which you received the higher grade.”
NCAA will also take the highest grade in calculating GPA.
(For all other colleges, please refer to their websites.)
If you have any questions, please ask your public school counselor.
