Students who wish to take online courses, either as an enrichment opportunity or as credit recovery for courses failed, are recommended to use the North Dakota Center for Distance Education*. Watford City High School will accept all credits from this institution, EXCEPT courses for which a student has already received credit (unless the student is taking the course to receive a better grade). These courses may be taken in the summer or school year; however, during the school year, students must still be enrolled in a full course load at WCHS and the courses must be done in the student's own time. The cost per semester course (0.5 credits) is $169.
