5463 - CREDITS FROM NONPUBLIC SCHOOLS

In recognizing its responsibility to uphold the minimum educational standards of the State of Michigan, the Board of Education establishes the following policy and criteria regarding the acceptance of credits from nonpublic schools whether they be State-approved, nonapproved, or home schools.

For credit or course-work to be accepted for courses taken in such schools, assurance of compliance with minimum requirements established by the State must be provided.

Recognition of credits or course-work shall be granted when the proper assurance and the student's transcript has been received. The District reserves the right to test and otherwise assess such transfer students in order to determine proper placement and to be assured the student can demonstrate the learnings which are prerequisite to a placement.

Although credits from nonpublic schools may be granted and placed on a student's transcript, no grades will be entered on the transcript or considered for class ranking.

A student must earn fourteen (14) credits at Mason High School to be eligible for any graduation honors.
