  • The student may not have any final grades of "F" on their high school transcript.
  • The student must already be enrolled in the minimum number of credits required for their grade level.
    6.0 for grades 10 & 11
    5.75 for grade 12
  • A student cannot take a class on a Pass/Fail basis if the class meets a requirement for graduation.
  • A maximum of 1.0 credit per year may be taken on a Pass/Fail basis.
  • The student must request to take the class on a Pass/Fail basis during the course registration process of the previous year and must complete an application form to be reviewed b the course teacher, department leader, and Director of Guidance.
  • If the request is approved, the student should be aware that a grade of Pass will not be counted in the student's GPA or QPA, but a grade of Fail WILL count toward both GPA and QPA.
