Overview

Credit–By–Exam provides a special opportunity for students with extensive life experiences to receive college credit for that knowledge. Seattle Central recognizes the rich and varied ways individuals learn throughout their lives and provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate academic competency by passing a course equivalency examination.

Course equivalency examinations could be paper and pencil examinations, but could also include oral presentations, demonstrations, documentation of previous training, or other appropriate methods determined by the instructor. Students who successfully pass such an examination will earn college credit for the course.

Full–time fees paid by students who have been admitted to Seattle Central are not applicable to these courses. Credit–By–Exam courses are not covered by financial aid and do not meet federal requirements for loan deferment purposes.

All Credit–By–Exam program courses are transferable college credits. However, if they are to be part of a student's A.A., A.S., A.A.S., or B.A. degree, the diploma or degree–granting institution reserves the right to determine course(s) eligibility. Students desiring to transfer credits to another college or university should check with the institutions prior to enrolling in a Credit–By–Exam course.
