Trimester 3: 2019-2020 Packet
CAS entry form is optional in most cases, as you will automatically get a “Pass” grade for any classes you are enrolled in this term as long as you were on track to graduate when the term began. If this is the case for you, you will earn the honorary IHS diploma regardless of the number of CAS hours you have completed.
If you did NOT pass a previous term of Seminar due to CAS, you may enter new hours here to work toward a grade change. The minimum requirements in each strand of CAS (25 hours of Creativity, 25 hours of Activity, 50 hours of Service) no longer apply as long as you bring the previous term’s hours up to 15 total. In other words, you may complete hours in ANY of the three strands to reach a total of 15, even if you were short in certain categories before the COVID-19 outbreak began.
May 29, 2020 – suggested due date for 15 hours of CAS for previous terms. If you have CAS hours to make up for a grade change from a previous term, it would be wise to enter hours sooner than later. If you have passes all previous terms of Seminar, the due date is entirely optional (as are the hours).
