TUHSD Policy of Online Transfer Credits

  • Acceptance of transfer credits from sources outside the Tempe Union High School District is not automatic. It is recommended that students meet with their counselor before enrolling in courses outside TUHSD to determine what process must be followed and to clarify how the credit will be accepted. Beginning with the school year 2017-2018, online courses from non-TUHSD accredited high schools are accepted by TUHSD as elective credit only.

Additional Enrollment Procedures

  • Any student enrolling that has been out of school ten (10) or more consecutive days will enter on a "no credit" status (student will receive no credit for the semester).

    A Note to Parents/Guardians from the Attendance Office regarding Phone and/or Address Changes:
    Parents and legal guardians-please inform the front office as soon as possible if:

    • You have any changes in your work/home phone number
    • You have a change of address

    We MUST have current phone numbers in the event we need to contact you for any reason.

    When notifying us of a change of address, please provide the front office with a copy of a current utility bill (SRP, SW gas, City of Tempe/Chandler/Phoenix) showing that your residence is within your school of choice's attendance area.

    If you have moved outside your school of choice's attendance area, an Open Enrollment Application must be submitted. The Open Enrollment application can be found in our Online Enrollment system.

    Important:  ALL classes/courses taken outside of a student’s regular schedule MUST have prior approval. ALL students wishing to take a class off-campus must visit their school counselor to pick up an Alternative Credit Form, have it signed and approved. Failure to do this will result in the denial of outside credit placed on transcripts.
