Course Credit Request Form
Students wishing to receive credit for any non-accredited high school course(s) will be required to complete two steps: 1) Complete this form with the required information for each course they wish to transfer in; 2) Take a Content Mastery Exam for any core courses (Math, Science, English, History) taken during the most recent academic year or pass a higher level course with NorthStar Academy.

This form must be completed BEFORE you begin the course unless you are a new transfer student to NorthStar Academy. Deadline for request is OCTOBER 1. On a limited basis, some second semester requests will be reviewed when submitted by February 1.

Ex: Your child wants to transfer to NSA as an 11th grader and has completed home school up through 10th grade. For each course taken in 9th grade and 10th grade, a Credit Request Form must be completed. For the four core courses taken in 10th grade, your child must take a Content Mastery Exam and receive a 70% or better or pass a higher level course. Note: The Homeschool or non-accredited course grade will be listed on the transcript (not the Course Mastery Exam score).

Please view our Transfer Credit policies and contact the guidance office ( if you have questions about this form.
