Things to consider when choosing postsecondary institution
 Out of pocket expenses, location, course offerings

Are you taking the course for Graduation?
 Take the DE course for High School credit. Be sure to
get your transcript to your high school!

Are you taking courses to earn college credit?
 Be sure it will transfer to the school you intend to go
to!

Are you hoping to achieve both?
 MOST universities will not grant you credit for both.
Although you can try, you can’t ‘undo’. Check with
your college and weigh your options.

eligibility.

Can the college require additional
qualifications to ensure college readiness?
 YES. Colleges may use additional assessments to
ensure success in a course.

Are there any limitations regarding the courses
students may take?
 YES. Courses that are a hobby, craft, recreational or a course
that is in the areas of Physical Education, theology, divinity,

If a student fails to complete the district/school paid
postsecondary course, is he or she responsible for the
fees/tuition?

student shall repay the school district for courses that were
not completed. The school district may impost sanctions
against the eligible student as determined by school district
policy
