Credit by Examination

Currently enrolled students who feel that their knowledge is equivalent to the course content of a currently approved course may apply for Credit by Examination. To do so, the following conditions must be met:

  • The student must submit evidence of extensive background and/or experience in the subject area to the instructor of the course
  • The student must have completed twelve (12) or more units at Crafton Hills College or be a permanent employee of the San Bernardino Community College District
  • The student must be enrolled in the college during the semester in which the examination is taken, but not enrolled in the course for which the student wishes to earn Credit by Examination
  • The student must have the approval of a full-time instructor in the discipline

Students may receive Credit by Examination in foreign language courses only in sequence from the lowest to highest level. See a counselor for details.

To apply, the student must submit a fully completed and signed application for Credit by Examination for each course requested to the Office of Instruction (CCR-235). Applications may be obtained in the Admissions and Records Office (CCR-111). In addition to paying the enrollment fee based on the number of units of the course, there is an additional processing fee of $20 that is applied to all Credit by Examination applications. No financial aid of any kind is available for Credit by Examination (SBCCD Administrative Procedure 4235)
