No, MU High School provides students with a rigorous curriculum that teaches the academic skills necessary to earn an accredited high school diploma.

A GED, or General Education Development test series allows students to take tests to prove proficiency in high school level content area and career/college readiness skills.

Accreditation is a verification by an outside party that an educational institution offers a quality, standards based education. For more information on what accreditation is and why it is important to seek programs who are accredited, such as Mizzou K-12 Online, please visit AdvancEd.

MU Online High School is fully accredited by AdvancED and the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement.

The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) serves as the governing body for college athletics. It certifies the academic and amateur credentials of prospective collegiate athletes. Because it certifies the academic credentials of students, the NCAA reviews the courses that students take to earn academic eligibility.

NCAA Eligible courses have been individually reviewed and verified as meeting the rigorous criteria set forth by the NCAA.  However, it is important to consider that some courses, while academically challenging, simply may not meet the eligibility criteria for NCAA eligibility due to the flexible nature of their course schedule.

Students considering college athletics will want to consider their course selections to ensure they are reviewed and approved by the NCAA. Students who are not planning on pursuing college athletics (and certain other post secondary activities that NCAA eligibility can leverage) can also consider NCAA eligibility as an assurance of the rigorous, quality nature of the course offered.

The NCAA’s rigorous standards require that classes be individually approved for eligibility. Many core courses offered by MU High School have been approved by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association)  for establishing initial-eligibility certification of student-athletes. You can search for NCAA eligible courses through the Find a Course tool.

Part time enrollment students attend and/or are pursuing a diploma from a different school; they use the flexibility of Mizzou K-12 Online’s courses to supplement their curriculum and meet their individual needs. Alternatively, full time diploma program students who meet the requirements will graduate and earn a diploma from MU High School, Mizzou K-12 Online’s official high school. Students who are part time are welcome to apply for the diploma program.

Tuition is $500 per .5 credit (Carnegie units) for students residing in the U.S. There is an additional $75 fee for AP courses.

School affiliates should check the School Enrolling Part Time page for more information on tuition rates.

Many devices, including tablets and mobile phones, offer a high level of access to most of the functions in your course. Access to all functions can be best assured through access to a computer (desktop or notebook) that is appropriately configured to meet our Technology Requirements. Therefore, it is recommended that students have access to a computer or notebook, or at least an alternative technology.

Each course is unique and the technology requirements may slightly vary. Students should review the Technology Requirements reference guide.

Schools or parents/guardians are responsible for providing the students with access to the equipment, software, and Internet connectivity required for course completion.

  • Using word processing software
  • Saving files to a hard drive, portable storage device, or cloud service and retrieving them for editing or submission

  •         Part time Enrollment Students: If taking individual courses with Mizzou K-12 Online, your full time affiliate school approval helps ensure that the course(s) is aligned with your academic plan.

A student is considered part time when they intend to graduate from a high school other than MU High School but want to take one or more courses with Mizzou K-12 Online. Frequently students want to accelerate or catch up on course credit, expand their curriculum options or find more flexibility in their schedule.

The primary difference is related to the course schedule. Flexible courses are offered year round, begin immediately after enrollment, and accommodate students desiring to work at their own pace, quickly receiving feedback on their progress. This means they may take as much time as they need or work ahead in their courses, within the set parameters.

Alternatively, Scheduled courses begin on a set date every semester and progress at a relatively set schedule with students’ peers as directed by the instructor. Scheduled courses allow the opportunity to collaborate with their peers and instructors in a more traditional semester based format, but with the flexibility of all course interaction being online. For more information on the policies regarding the formats, please see the Course Format Choices page.

Flexible Format Courses: Begin immediately after enrollment is processed and tuition is paid in full. They cannot be completed quicker than 6 weeks after submitting the first lesson, and tuition includes 180 calendar days (6 months) from the enrollment date.

Scheduled Format Classes: Follow a more traditional school calendar with set start and end dates for the terms.

Semester 1/Fall Session

  • Courses begin in late August
  • Courses end in mid-December

Semester 2/Spring Session

  • Courses begin in early January
  • Courses end in mid-May

For the most updated information on course terms and other important dates, please see the Calendar.

Because you are learning in a group setting with other students, a Scheduled Format Course runs closer to a traditional school schedule. If you need to take a class out of its regular sequence, consider taking a Flexible Format Course.

Because of their advanced rigor, AP classes have an additional tuition rate. The AP rate is an additional $75 per course.

  • Unofficial Transcripts

    Students and guardians are able to access the student’s unofficial transcript at any time through Tiger Portal.  Any request for Mizzou K-12 Online to fax a transcript must use the Transcript Request form.  Faxed transcripts will be considered unofficial and will incur a processing fee of $10 for domestic fax number and $15 for international fax number.  For questions, please contact Student Support Services.

  • Official Transcript Requests

    Mizzou K-12 Online staff make their best effort to process official transcript requests within 7 days of receiving the authorized request and payment (if applicable – see Transcript Fees).  Transcript Requests forms submitted before final course grade is assigned by the instructor will show on transcript as “In Progress.” If needing an official transcript to reflect course completion, do not submit the Transcript Request form until final course grade is assigned by the instructor.
