Credit By Examination

Examinations for Credit by Examination or Acceleration

NISD offers opportunities for currently enrolled students to participate in acceleration examinations at different times during the school year and the summer months. Students may register for acceleration examinations to advance one complete grade level; advance math beyond their enrolled grade level or multiple courses in which the student has received no prior instruction. Students also have the opportunity to recovery any courses that may have lost credit. The criteria for credit and grade placement are based on legal and local district policies.  Please discuss credit-by-exam opportunities with your student's teacher or guidance counselor, as acceleration may not be appropriate for all students.
