OOI Student Expectations and Policies
Because this program is optional and self-referred, students enrolled in the Adult High School Diploma Program are expected to show commitment to their education. Please read our OOI Student Expectations and Policies before enrolling in our Adult High School Diploma Program and begin the education process.
Each quarter students must earn a B or higher to credit for coursework. A student will have the opportunity to redo assignments until a course grade of a B or higher is met, or until the quarter ends. If the student does not meet this expected grade, the class will not be considered complete.
If the coursework is not considered complete, the student will have the opportunity to redo coursework in the following quarter; however will pay again for the cost of the course.
If the student shows patterns that indicate that the Oregon Outreach AHSD program is not right for them, or it is not the right time for them to work on their diploma, they are exited from the program. Students that are exited may appeal their suspension if they believe there are compelling reasons for reinstatement from suspension. Suspension appeals may be requested from the Executive Director.
Payment and Refund Policy
Before the start of the new quarter, the student and advisor will develop a plan and determine the coursework for that quarter. The student must register for the specific coursework, which will be signed off by the advisor and payment must be made if full at that time.
