Information for Students and Parents

Please contact your local school to discuss enrollment in our summer credit recovery program.  MTDA Connect Credit Recovery courses are not available directly to students and require a local infrastructure for monitoring students and proctoring unit and final exams.  In addition, the local summer calendar will determine the availability of the courses.  Students must be complete courses before the end of the local summer program.

Additional Program Details

  • Enrollment Dates: Although enrollment is open now, please note: 1)  Students in enrolled in the summer semester are expected to participate in the summer. Do not enroll spring students in the summer program if they need the class before the end of the school year.   Please put in a support ticket to discuss exceptions, support(at)montanadigitalacademy.org.  2)  Do not enroll students until they are ready to start in the program.  Students will be expected to start work immediately upon enrollment and risk being dropped if they do not start participating.
  • Course limits: MTDA will continue to enforce its one-enrollment-per-student limit for summer courses.  Students are able to enroll in additional courses upon course completion.  If you have a case you believe justifies an exception, please contact our help desk to schedule a call to discuss the situation, support(at)montanadigitalacademy.org.
  • Semester Completion: All courses must be completed by either 1) the last day of local proctoring service availability or 2) August 15th, whichever is first.  There will be no extensions available or application of past credit in the fall.
  • Engagement Time: The average student should expect to be engaged in the class for roughly 60 hours in the summer time and schools should be sure to consider this before enrolling students.  Students that have significant challenges in a particular academic area will likely take more time.
  • Offline Assignments:  All offline assignments listed in the individual course syllabus documents are required for completion in the course.  Students that complete only post-tests will not be recommended for credit in the course.
