Credit Recovery Options


Instead of Taking a Class

As college admissions becomes increasingly competitive, many selective colleges are looking beyond academics to determine admission. If you are already a strong student, consider doing something other than studying this summer to show personal growth and involvement. If you don't believe us, check out this article by Peterson's.

FUHSD Summer Academy

The Fremont Union High School District offers a limited summer program prioritizing students who have earned a F in a class required for graduation. Offerings in Biology, Algebra 1, Geometry, English, World History, US History, Government, and Economics are filled first by students who have not passed the course. Students who have earned a D in any of these courses, and wish to make them up to be college eligible, are placed as space is available.


FUHSD Summer Academy program – http://fuhsd.org/summerprograms

  • 2018 Summer Academy Dates: Session 1:  June 12 - June 29  or  Session 2:  July 9 - July 26 (each session earns 5 credits of work; typically, session 1 = 1st semester and session 2 = 2nd semester)
  • Late Registration for FUHSD Summer Academy:  June 7, 2018 at Fremont High School Library during the assigned grade-level time: Seniors – 8:00am; Juniors 8:30am; Sophomore 9:00am; Freshman 9:30am

Options Outside of FUHSD to make-up courses/grades

For options beyond the FUHSD Program, the LHS Guidance Team researches some local opportunities at Private High Schools, Online Summer Programs, and Community Colleges to find affordable opportunities to make-up grades.

  1. Meet with your counselor to discuss program and goals (Counselors are not available after May 31st)
  2. Review the SUMMER OPTIONS for different ways to MAKE UP COURSES (this list is not exhaustive, but provides a starting point)
  3. It is often difficult to find equivalents for AP and honors courses during the summer and some times, it may not be possible to find a course
  4. After selecting a program, submit a Request for Credit Form to the LHS Main Office and await approval.  Request for credit forms are due to the main office by JUNE 21st (the office is open with limited hours - check the LHS website).
  5. Once you complete a summer course, don't forget to send a final transcript to: LHS Registrar, 1280 Johnson Ave, San Jose, CA 95129

Keep in mind that for graduation purposes, a "D" grade is considered passing, but 4-year colleges may not accept a "D" grade as passing credit, especially not in required courses. Visit http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/requirements/a-g-requirements/ to clarify admission requirements to the University of California (requirements the same for the California State University system.)

Course Advancement/Enrichment

In some cases, students would like to take summer classes to get ahead in curriculum or to help balance the workload for the following year. In order to request credits on the LHS transcript, students must submit a 'Request for Credit' form (linked above) and await approval prior to registering for the course.

Students who wish to take courses for fun or personal growth are welcome to do so, however, many of these courses do NOT transfer to the LHS transcript.

THE DEADLINE TO REQUEST CREDIT FOR ENRICHMENT COURSES ON THE LHS TRANSCRIPT IS APRIL 27, 2018. Remember to submit a course description with the request for credit form.
