Before completing the registration form, make sure you have familiarized yourself with KET’s Online Campus policies and procedures.
It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that students have completed all prerequisites prior to registration. In some upper level courses KET requires students to take an entrance exam. The school must meet all classroom technical requirements of the courses (including, but not limited to: Internet connectivity, computer requirements, Skype capabilities, and telephone lines) prior to the first day of classes. KET Online Campus courses are state-approved, taught by certified teachers and are eligible for high school credit (one Carnegie Unit per course) from the school.
