Course Requirements and Credit

Minimum Attendance for Course Credit

As previously noted, districts and BOCES must use for summer school a pro-ration of regular school year attendance requirements contained in the board of education-approved attendance policy. Districts and BOCES may adopt an attendance policy requiring minimum attendance for students to receive academic credit. Such policies may provide that a properly excused pupil absence does not count as an absence for the purpose of determining course credit eligibility if the student has performed any assigned make-up work (8 NYCRR §104.1[i][2][v]). See Part 104 of the Commissioner’s regulations for all applicable requirements.

Recognition of Earned Credit

All New York State registered high schools must grant transfer credit for all credit awarded by any public or nonpublic registered New York State high school (8 NYCRR §100.5[d][5][i][a]). After consultation with relevant faculty, a principal may also grant transfer credit for work done at institutions other than New York State registered high schools upon determining that such work is consistent with New York State learning standards and is comparable in scope and quality to that which would have been done in the school awarding the credit (8 NYCRR §100.5[d][5][i][b]).
