Non-MHHS Courses

Starting in 9th grade, MHHS students may chose to take courses through online providers, community colleges, or other outside schools. Students must follow the steps for enrollment and research outlined below to receive permission to take these courses from MHHS counselors. If students plan to complete required course work through outside providers (examples: US History, World History, etc) courses must be done prior to the year they are required in a student's schedule at MHHS. Please refer to our 4-year plan to learn more about required course years. 

NOTE: Students enrolled in the MHHS Early College COHORT Program DO NOT need to complete the course permission process for pathway courses. 


1. Students must gain approval for these courses through their counselor prior to enrolling in the course (see step 2).  

Students must research and verify their course plans first. Counselors will review plans through the online permission form process. 

Researching and verifying Non-MHHS Courses
  • Go to the UC “A-G” website at:
  • On that page, “Institution search” should be highlighted.
  • In the search box, type in the name of a school or company that might have the course you are looking for and hit “Enter” or the “Search” icon. (There are some examples of schools on the bottom of this page).
  • If the institution has been reviewed by the UC’s, it will appear as a choice to select in blue.
  • Click on the blue institution name. You should now see a page showing all of the UC approved courses that the company or school offers each year. The courses are listed in the ‘A’ through ‘G’ categories in which they belong.
  • If the a-g course list for the school or company you are reviewing does not have the course you are looking for, click “Back” and simply repeat the process above using a new school or company in the box (Step 3). You can also try the course search feature by changing out of institution search on the main page.
  • After you have found an A-G approved course, but before enrolling or paying tuition, complete and submit the online Non-MHHS Course Planning Form: LINK  * The online planning form will close each year on the last day of school, but will reopen on the first day of the new school year.
