The High School Credit Recovery Program at Mt. Hood Community College is a service we provide to currently enrolled high school students grades 9-12 in the Portland-Metropolitan area.
Students looking to recover credits from classes taken at their home high school can retake those courses through our spring or summer program. We offer high school level classes in all core subject areas required for the completion of the Oregon Diploma and local
high school graduation requirements.
Our courses are approved by the Oregon Department of Education as original credit courses, as they also serve students enrolled in our Adult High School Diploma Program. With approval from the home high school, students seeking to accelerate
their high school education may take our courses for original credit.
