Once a course is completed, a completion certificate is issued to the student’s school of record, as long as the student's account is in good standing.
A student who fails a course may enroll in it again.
NDCDE's credit recovery program is another option for those students who fail certain core courses, whether the courses are provided by their school of record or NDCDE. Administrative approval from both the local school and NDCDE is required to enroll in a credit recovery course.
In the event that a student has reached his or her enrollment end date with work missing, the CDE instructor will enter zeros for all unsubmitted assignments and a course completion will be issued, unless a one-time only course extension is purchased.
Minimum Completion Time
It is strongly recommended that a NDCDE course should not be completed in less than five weeks. This minimum is set in order to provide adequate time for student and teacher interaction, assignment completion, and grading.
