Students must have a cumulative 3.0 GPA and an excellent disciplinary record. You MUST complete an application to be admitted into the class. 

What about the college credit?
  The credit will transfer to any college or university in the United States. The receiving college will determine how the credit will be applied to the student’s course of study dependent on their major , but no college has refused to accept it. 

Can juniors take the class?

This class will still be of great benefit to you! See Mrs. Dilley in 329D for more information. Applications are available from Mrs. Dilley, outside of 329D in the folder, and online.
