261C.5  High school credits.

A school district, the school for the deaf, the Iowa braille and sight saving school, or accredited nonpublic school shall grant high school academic or vocational- technical credit to an eligible pupil enrolled in a course under this chapter if the eligible pupil successfully completes the course as determined by the eligible institution. Eligible pupils, who have completed the eleventh grade but who have not yet completed the requirements for graduation, may take up to seven semester hours of credit during the summer months when school is not in session and receive credit for that attendance, if the pupil pays the cost of attendance of those summer credit hours. The board of directors of the school district, the state board of regents for the school for the deaf and the Iowa braille and sight saving school, or authorities in charge of an accredited nonpublic school shall determine the number of high school credits that shall be granted to an eligible pupil who successfully completes a course.

The high school credits granted to an eligible pupil under this section shall count toward the graduation requirements and subject area requirements of the school district of residence, the school for the deaf, the Iowa braille and sight saving school, or accredited nonpublic school of the eligible pupil. Evidence of successful completion of each course and high school credits and postsecondary academic or vocational- technical credits received shall be included in the pupil's high school transcript.
