You will need to obtain a transcript to verify what grade was posted by the instructor. We use a (S) Satisfactory (U) Unsatisfactory grading system. Grades are final once posted on your transcript. No credits are awarded for any course in which a U (unsatisfactory) is earned.

We require you to be enrolled in the course for two weeks before the course is completed. We will not grade a course before this two weeks has passed. Upon completion of the course, please give us 14 business days to submit your grades. You can then Request a Transcript at no cost. 

We are unable to offer refunds. Please check with your state/district to ensure that they will accept our credits before you register and pay.
