Confirmation of high school credit.

The eligibility of the college in the high school courses which the student intends to take for the award of high school credit and the amount of such credit shall be established, as follows:
(1) The district, charter school, or tribal compact school shall establish on a course by course basis the amount of high school required or elective credit, or combination thereof, that shall be awarded for each college in the high school course. Successful course completion by the student based upon the conversion rate set forth in RCW 28A.230.090(6) which states "At the college or university level, five quarter or three semester hours equals one high school credit." This conversion rate holds true for all college in the high school classes regardless of whether or not the student elects to earn the available college credit.
(2) If a college in the high school course is not comparable to a district, charter school, or tribal compact school's specific course required for high school graduation, the district, charter school, or tribal compact school superintendent shall determine the amount of required high school credit which shall be awarded following consultation with a representative of the institution of higher education designated for that purpose. The difference between the amount of credit required ascribed to that course and the amount of credit earned at the conversion rate set forth in RCW 28A.230.090(6) shall be awarded as elective credit.
(3) Within five school days of a student's request for confirmation of credit, the district, charter school, or tribal compact school superintendent or other designated representative shall confirm in writing the amount of high school required or elective credit, or combination thereof, which shall be awarded upon successful completion of the college in the high school course.
(4) Upon confirmation by the college in the high school instructor of a student's successful completion of a college in the high school course under this chapter, the district, charter school, or tribal compact school shall record on the student's secondary school records and transcript the high school credit previously confirmed under the section with a notation that the courses were taken at an institution of higher education pursuant to WAC 392-415-070.
(5) Each district, charter school, or tribal compact school and institution of higher education shall independently have and exercise exclusive jurisdiction over academic and discipline matters involving a student's enrollment and participation in courses of, and the receipt of services and benefits from the district, charter school, tribal compact school or the institution of higher education.
