CREDIT RECOVERY FAQ
Credit Recovery Questions
How does it work?
Keystone provides coursework that students can complete independently whenever and wherever they need to—at home, at school, or on the go. After first obtaining approval for Keystone’s credit recovery courses from their school counselor, principal or other authorized school official, students complete the courses and submit their work to Keystone for evaluation. Our evaluators then report the student’s grade to the student’s school, which will award credit at its discretion.
How much does it cost?
Online tuition costs are as follows:
Online course tuition Part A or Part B $149
Online course tuition Part A and Part B $249

Who pays for it?

How does the credit transfer back to my student’s school?
Once the course has been graded, one report will be sent to the student’s home and one to the guidance counselor at the school of record. The amount of credit awarded upon completion is to be determined by the student’s resident school.
How long will it take?
Online credit recovery courses are broken into Part A and Part B, and each part consists of approximately 60 hours of coursework. Correspondence units include 30-45 hours of content per course.
