Course Completion

Once a course is completed, the completion certificate can be downloaded through our Student Information System for 180 days following completion. After this time, a completion certificate may be requested by a student, parent, or school by contacting NDCDE.

In the event that a student has reached his or her enrollment end date with work missing, the CDE instructor will enter zeros for all unsubmitted assignments and a course completion will be issued, unless a one-time only course extension is purchased. Extensions must be purchased within 10 business days of the final grade being issued.

See the NDCDE policy on Course Length for information on requesting holds, extensions, and retakes.
