What is Credit by Exam?
California has developed a program of "articulation" that provides a process to align curriculum and instruction providing a seamless career pathway transition between courses, grades and schools at the high school, community college and college/university levels. These articulation agreements create sequences of progressive, non-duplicated education leading to technical skill proficiency, a credential, a certificate, or a degree in a wide range of fields and careers. The Tri-Valley is fortunate to have several of these types of agreements between Las Positas College, Diablo Valley College and Tri-Valley ROP and the three districts in the area. Such agreements often include "credit by exam" to receive college credit for rigorous coursework taken at the high school level (separate from AP classes). Through the Credit by Examination process, high school students may receive credit at the college level for some articulated courses. Credit by Examination means that a student has satisfactorily passed an exam approved or conducted college faculty.
