Outside PUSD Courses
and Enrichment Programs


Students can pursue any classes at any school that you find fit for your student's goal, learning style, schedule, budget, locations, etc. It is student and parent responsibility to verify if the course meets 4-year college admissions, including UC/CSU a-g requirements, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

Students should plan for the next level of appropriate courses on their CRF, until providing proof of successful completion of courses outside of PUSD.
If the student has not started 9th grade yet:
Courses/grades taken prior to the start of 9th grade are not permitted to transfer to their high school transcript. Being that credits are not transferring for your high school diploma, it does not need to be PUSD/DNHS approved.  Parents and students take full responsibility for meeting college entrance and UC/CSU eligibility requirements when choosing to take outside PUSD courses. Please understand, one of the benefits of Del Norte’s trimester calendar, is that students are provided ample time to fulfill and exceed graduation and college admission requirements in the regular day. Additionally, you have a fantastic Counseling team at the middle school who will also provide insight & guidance. They are your first point of contact.
If the student is a current Del Norte student and attending Del Norte:
  • Once parent/guardian and student determine which school and course they want to pursue, they must complete the pre-approval forms prior to enrolling in the course - the student should see Mrs. Malimali, Del Norte Registrar, for written permission to take a course outside of PUSD.
  • Courses taken off-campus do NOT replace previously earned grades/credits on-campus. If you are pursuing an approved course off-campus for transferable grades/credits back to the DNHS transcript and completed the forms, then both grades factor into cumulative GPA.
  • Upon completion of approved courses, it is the family’s responsibility to order an official transcript (signed and sealed) to be received by the DNHS Registrar’s office by the deadline.
  • If the course is a Palomar College course, the student should 1) register on Palomar’s website where they will get a Palomar student ID number, 2) complete the K12 form with parent signatures and Palomar ID #, 3) bring the K12 form to DNHS registrar for authorization, 4) submit K12 form to Palomar College, 5) enroll in the Palomar class.
