Students are eligible to earn middle or high school credits through SOEP if they:
If the LEA does not approve the course within 9 business days, the SOEP will automatically approve the course.
Students need to sign up for classes 1 or 2 months before the term begins so that the approval process does not hinder their ability to meet enrollment deadlines and start dates for coursework.
SOEP allows Utah students, grades 7 and 8, public, private, or home schooled, that are not regularly enrolled in an Online School, the opportunity to take middle school courses from accredited Online Provider.
This program allows students to take courses that meet their individual education needs and/or provides flexibility in their in-person schedule. Courses fulfill middle school requirements only, and do not earn credit toward graduation. If you desire courses to earn graduation requirements, please refer to the High School tab.

Any grade 7 through 12 students in Utah, are eligible to take High School courses through the SOEP program.
Students can work with their school counselor to decide what courses best fit their educational needs.
