*Dual Credit classes are given honors credit as long as the grade is 85 or above. A grade of a C (75 and under) will not receive honors credit at TCS. A grade below 70 will not receive any high school credit.*Be cautious about taking classes the second summer semester that are not online. TCS will begin school before the semester is completed. *Remember that these are college level courses. Professors will expect to communicate only with the student, not the parents. Please expect to take on the responsibility of self-paced, difficult work. Most professors do not accept late work, and due dates are typically given at the first of each semester. Students are expected to be responsible for obtaining a numerical grade from their professor when the course is complete. Colleges do not issue number grades on the transcript.
