NHS credit will not be awarded; however grade will go on transcript. Options for retaking failed courses Advanced Measures For extracurricular eligibility purposes, dual credit courses are exempt Access to Grades: counselors are not allowed access to grades due to FERPA; contact the university with questions/concerns Advanced Measures: Receiving 80 or above in a 3 hour approved college course will count as 1 measure.

8 Miscellaneous Information
Scheduling Issues Register at SFA quickly to reserve your “spot” in the course. Most important that the student gets NHS credit. Adhering to Deadlines Aug. 9th, 2013 for fall semester Absences for extra-curricular SFA does not excuse our absences Scheduling issues: Register as quickly as possible. Classes fill up fast. NHS students are competing with SFA students for spots. SFA will not hold your “spot”

9 Know Your Child Is your child ready to take Dual Credit?
Signs your student may not be ready for Dual Credit. Are they responsible? Are they self motivated? Will they take the initiative to register and figure out what they need to take or are you as the parent still doing this for them Will they show up to class? NHS will not be monitoring their absences off campus. Do you still have/need to monitor your child’s grades
