Semester Schedule and No Average Rule Scenario

On this page:

The following rules apply when a building has semester length courses and does not use the average rule:

  • Credit is issued on a semester mark.
  • Each course in the Master Schedule that prints on a transcript must have this mark type.
  • Credit calculates in the local course. Run Build Course Equivalency to move credit to the state course.
  • Every course on the PEIMS Course page must have a single digit course sequence code. Typically, the sequence will be 1, 2, or 0.
