College Courses:

Students are permitted to take courses at nearby colleges and universities for enrichment purposes. Credit will be granted for such course work upon successful completion of the course. Credits are entered on the transcript and are used in the computation of the grade point average. College courses (100 level and above) receive a weight equal to an Advanced Placement course.
