Credit for Prior Learning

Credit for Prior Learning is an evaluation of learning that occurred in a setting outside of a regionally-accredited college or university’s credit courses. This can include (but is not limited to) learning that took place in a non-regionally-accredited college or university’s credit courses, noncredit coursework, military training, on-the-job training, or registered apprenticeship programs.


Credit by Exam

Credit is awarded based on a passing score on a nationally recognized test - see the Exam Equivalency Guide in the CCC Catalog for qualifying scores and the credit awarded for:


  • Advanced Placement (AP)
  • Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)
  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
  • DANTES Subject Standardized Test (DSST)
  • International Baccalaureate (IB)


To have exam scores evaluated for credit, students should request that an official score report be sent from the testing agency directly to CCC.
