College Entrance Requirements, CSU Eligibility, and UC Eligibility
The pages and reports handling the calculation of credits for UC and CSU Eligibility have been updated to support policy changes as a result of Spring 2020 School closures. A new setting must be set by schools: "Does the School Year on HIS records change for the Summer following an academic year?"
