1. Post-Secondary Educational Options (PSEO) PSEOP allows Ohio high school students to earn college credit and high school credit through completion of college courses. Students must meet the state and university requirements. Students travel to the university to take these courses. Students do not have to pay college tuition for these courses. 2. Concurrent Enrollment Students attend a university and can earn college and high school credit at the same time. Parents and students absorb this cost. Universities that do not participate in PSEO offer this option.
3. Dual Enrollment Students take these classes at Hayes High School in their regular schedules, taught by Hayes High School teachers. Students pay reduced tuition fees and can receive both high school and a college credit at the end of the course. Look in the Course Handbook or refer to the course selection sheet. 4. Advanced Placement (AP) The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is offered to high school students through The College Board and provides a resource for students to earn collegiate credit before enrolling at a university. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered at Hayes High School. Students must apply for these courses. These courses also have additional fees and a culminating test in May. Students who take AP courses stand out in the admissions process. High test scores can result in college credit. See the course guide for available courses. Beginning with the Class of 2014 a student must earn a C- or better to earn the additional point for weighted grading.
Marion-Tech PSEO Courses Students with a 2.75 GPA may apply for the PSEO courses that will be taught by a Marion Tech Instructor at Hayes. Sociology and Oral Communications will be taught the first semester and Psychology and Dealing with Diversity will be taught second semester.

Students will now only be able to drop courses ONE time during their high school career without penalty after the first two weeks of the start of a course. A “W” indicating Withdrawal from the course will be entered on the transcript. This does not affect the GPA. All courses dropped after this option is used, will result in an F. This will be entered on the transcript and will affect the GPA. If a student has dropped courses prior to the 2013-14 school year, he/she will still be granted the one-time “W” option.
The following restrictions are placed upon this choice: No required core course may be taken pass/fail. No more than one credit may be elected in a given subject area during the four years of high school. PowerSchool will indicate actual grade percentage earned. A student may choose to return to the standard letter grade anytime prior to the end of the course. If this option is selected, the student is responsible for making the request in writing to their Guidance counselor by the end of the course. The student will then receive a letter grade for the final grade of the course. When the student drops the pass/fail option, they may not use the pass/fail option for another course in that school year. Application must be returned to guidance no later than the end of course’s 1st Term.
