- Students will be given as great an opportunity to finish courses as possible

Start dates can be flexible to align with local school calendars.
Students on a trimester schedule may start at their school’s start date and end when necessary to follow their school schedule.
Students on a trimester block schedule should request semester .5 credits. (if you complete a year of a course in 2 trimesters, for example Anoka Hennepin and Hutchinson.)
There will be a choice of credits and end dates available to accommodate needs for local school requirements:
- Nov 7
- Jan 24
- Mar 27
- Jun 5
NOTE: SENIORS needing their grades reported to their home district by graduation will need to enter an end date 5 days prior to the date their school requires grades to be submitted to guarantee reporting in time for district graduation deadlines.
Credit Choices (see also NSO Credit Definition)
- .50 = regular semester, block quarter or block trimester
- .25 = regular quarter or block half-quarter
- .33 = trimester
Communication with counselors will be particularly important to determine the correct amount of credit to match the local school schedule and graduation requirements.
