TUHSD online School 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.
