Students must be enrolled at a district high school while attending a concurrent off-campus class in order to receive credit on a SDUHSD transcript. No student may begin to acquire high school credits until the day after the completion of the 8th grade. Middle school students may not place off-campus classes on their SDUHSD transcript.
No more than 30 credits combined from college courses, private instruction, or public school courses may be transferred onto the high school transcript.
Only courses with the same course title and content will count as repeats of courses taken in SDUHSD high schools for GPA calculation. All earned grades will remain on the SDUHSD transcript.
