Grade & Credit Recovery Options

Earning a grade of  "D" or "F" will impact  4-year college eligibility. A grade of "F" will also impact high school graduation. Below are some options for students who need to repeat and/or make up credits/courses. 

VUSD - On Campus Option


Rancho offers internet based, self-paced credit recovery classes for core classes and a few electives.  Students must complete enrollment set up and take proctored tests/finals in room 218. At this time, Edgenuity (for credit) is only offered during the traditional school year. See your school counselor to register.

NON VUSD OPTIONS (Off Campus Courses)

You can print a handout of the information below here: Coming Soon! 


Off Campus Course Approval Form

Prior to enrolling in any off campus course, students must review and complete a VUSD Off Campus Course Approval Form to receive credit for the course in VUSD. This form is used to validate the course(s) for credit towards VUSD high school graduation. Student must arrange for official transcripts to be provided to our registrar for on campus credit. You can pick up a VUSD Off Campus Course Approval Form in the Counseling Office. 


Community College

High school students may consider taking community college courses for high school credit (with some classes counting as college prep). However, you must have classes pre-approved using the VUSD Off Campus Course Approval Form. Be aware that there will be a cost to take the class. In addition to the VUSD paperwork, each college has its own registration process, forms, and assessment tests to be allowed to enroll. Course opportunities may be limited. If considering Community College, please first contact the college for their enrollment requirements and course options:
