What is a credit recovery course?

Posted by:

In credit recovery courses, students take a pre-test at the beginning of each unit. Depending on their pre-test result, the student may be exempted from some lessons covering content they already have mastered.

Credit recovery classes are only available to students who have previously failed an original credit course. When students finish, their original grade on their transcript is replaced with an X and the credit recovery class grade is posted. Thus, the final transcript will reflect that the student completed this version of the course.

Instead of credit recovery, students do have the option to retake the original course they failed. Upon completion, the lesser grade on the transcript will be completely replaced with the higher grade.
