Graduation Requirement Fulfillment Via Outside Institution

Students are now able to take courses at outside institutions to fulfill graduation requirements and have these courses placed on their transcripts.  Courses that will be eligible to be added to an SRVUSD transcript to fulfill a graduation requirement must not be completed until after the end of a student's 8th grade year.  Courses that can be taken include, but are not limited to:

  • English 9, 10, 11, 12 and AP English courses 
  • US History, World History, AP History (Euro, US or World), World Geography, Economics and Government


  • PE 9 cannot be taken from an outside institution and must be taken at SRVUSD
  • There is a limit of 4 classes (40 high school credits) that can be placed on the transcript over a student's four years in high school, with students being able to place only 20 credits per academic year, and 20 credits in any given subject area.
  • Any course taken to fulfill a graduation requirement MUST be placed on the SRVUSD transcript. 
    • Students must complete the SRVUSD Non District Course Application to add a course to the Transcript form
      • Students will be able to request courses to be added to their transcripts twice each school year. Deadlines do apply.
  • Grade-level courses cannot be used for advancement purposes (i.e. if a student is going in to the 10th grade in August and takes English 10 the summer prior, they cannot take English 11 as a 10th grader.  The intent is to free up a period of their day to take another class in their 10th grade year.

Warning: The course and/or institution you choose to fulfill a graduation requirement for SRVUSD may not be accepted by the UC/CSU system, private colleges and universities, out-of-state institutions, or NCAA as fulfilling entrance requirements.  It is your responsibility to check with an admissions officer from each campus to which you intend to apply to ensure it will be accepted.
