Academic Progress Policy
Student Course Load and Full-Time Status
Students at Michigan Online School must be enrolled in a minimum of 4 credits per semester in order to maintain their full-time status. A normal course load is 5-6 credits per semester.
Graduating seniors who require less than 4 credits to complete their program of study will be permitted to retain their full-time student status.
Student-Teacher Contact Requirements
Michigan Online School sets high expectations for its students and is committed to engaging with students to ensure success. To maintain instructional momentum, students are required to submit assignments in their courses on a weekly basis and to make regular contact with their instructors.
- Any student who does not make progress in the course for a period of 14 days and has not made prior arrangements with the course instructor will be flagged for follow-up.
- MOS administration will attempt to reconnect the student and parent/guardian with the course instructor to create a Success Plan for the student.
- Failure to respond to contact attempts, or failure to adhere to the Success Plan created by the student and family may result in withdrawal from the course with a failing grade.
Requests to drop or add a course after the beginning of the semester will be handled by administration on a case-by-case basis. The amount of coursework completed and grades received will be considered when making such decisions.
