In high school, students must earn a certain number of Carnegie units, or "credits" in order to progress from one grade level to the next. At the end of each year, a student must have earned the minimum number of units to move to the next grade level.
Below is a chart to determine a student's grade level classification:
9th grade (Freshman): 0 - 5.5 units
10th grade (Sophomore): 6 - 10.5 units
11th grade (Junior): 11 - 16.5 units
12th grade (Senior): at least 17 units
It is possible for a student to have earned the minimum number of credits needed to pass to the next grade level but still need to retake course(s) that he/she failed in the previous year. If a student fails a required course, he/she must retake the course at some point during his/her high school career in order to meet graduation requirements.
Below is a chart that shows the requirements for both the TOPS University and Jump Start diploma tracks. Students can use these sheets to keep track of their progress.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is used to determine a student's eligibility for state and school financial aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid. All seniors are required to complete the FAFSA as a part of graduation requirements.
Step 1: Create an FSA ID. This must be done by both student and parent.
