College Course Policies:
Course Grades

Students must earn a C or higher in order to earn college credit for a course. A grade of D in a college course will earn high school elective credit only. Please also refer to A-B Tech’s Grading System.

Course Withdrawals

Students will not be allowed to drop any college courses until they have met with the school counselor. Unless the withdrawal occurs within the first 10 days of school, students who withdraw from a college course will receive an “F” for that course on their high school transcript. The failing grade will be removed from the high school transcript when the student retakes the course and makes a passing mark.

If withdrawing from a course will leave a student with fewer than four courses, he or she will be assigned to a mandatory Success Lab each day for the remainder of the semester.
