2020-21 GHS Course Registration Guide
The 2020-21 Course Description Guide is a resource for students to plan their four year course of study at Grinnell High School. A detailed explanation of graduation requirements, scope & sequence, and pre-requisites are provided within this document.
Freshmen, Sophomores, & Juniors typically go through the registration process for the following year in the spring and do so with the assistance of their school counselors. For more information about the registration process, please feel free to view the 20-21 Registration Presentations for each grade level under the 2019-20 Seminar Information (under March 3rd & 5th) or contact the High School Counseling Office.
The Counselors also host an 8th grade Parent/Student Course Registration meeting each year. GHS Counselors also go to the Middle School to meet with 8th graders in small groups to take them through the registration process.
To Register for your courses, please go to your Infinite Campus Portal and log on.
After you've logged in, you can select "ACADEMIC PLAN" on the left hand side of the menu bar.
Once you've done this, select "NEXT" (don't do anything with the two drop down menus, "POST GRAD LOCATION" & "POST GRAD PLANS").
After you've clicked "NEXT" you should see a screen that looks similar to this:
This tells you what you've taken and what you are registered for (Required Courses) through your Senior Year. You can add courses to each of these areas with a white space by clicking on the space and selecting the course for the content area in the drop down menu:
Once you have selected all of your courses for next year (for each content area - General Electives, Science, Social Studies, Music, Spanish, etc.), simply go to the top and hit "SAVE" and you should be done.
If you need to switch out a "locked"course for something else (for example, switching from American Government to AP Government), you'll need to contact your school counselor.
