Course Features

From the date of enrollment, students have 150 days to complete the course. Students who want to advance may work through the course more quickly. For an additional fee, a 30-day extension can be requested if more time is needed. If an extension is required, download and complete the Course Extension Form and submit it by email to edservices@austin.utexas.edu or by fax to 512-471-7853. You can also request an extension online here.

Guidelines for Course Completion

All courses require proctored exams. Students can request the final once all assignments have been submitted and 70% of the assignments have been graded. High school students may be proctored at their own schools or at a testing center. Students who fail the exam can request a reexamination. Students are allowed one reexamination. Course policies are outlined the UTHS Parent and Student Handbook.

Final Exam & Grade/Transcript

The average of assignments counts for 75% of the course grade; the final exam counts for 25%. The student must score a 70% or better on the exam in order to pass the course. Student final grades can be viewed from the Student Portal or Counselor Portal. Official transcripts are provided by the student's high school.
