Credit Recovery (CR) courses are designed for students who have previously taken a course and have not mastered content to earn
credit. They are not for students wanting to accelerate, but designed for students that want to graduate on time. Credit Recovery
courses are available as two 0.5 credit semester-based courses. Students can take either one semester or the full year course.
Students should be able to show that the course was previously taken and not mastered.
