  • There will be a $75/student fee for each extension.
  • No extensions allowed to extend beyond July 31.

  • Archway counselors will set up the courses.
  • Archway counselors will review grades and progress to ensure there are no reporting errors before transcripts are released. If Archway is the only resource listed in Applecore for the course, grades and/or credits should agree with the grade and % completed in Archway.
  • If there is a grade/credit in Applecore that does not agree with course progress in Archway, Counselors will make corrections as needed to ensure there are no reporting errors.
