You can challenge a CCV course by demonstrating your mastery of the course objectives. You will be evaluated by a CCV faculty member who teaches the course. The process is
completed within 60 days or less. Awarded credits are ungraded CCV credits. Credits will appear on a CCV transcript, but may not transfer to other colleges.

Course Challenge is a Great Value

You pay a one-time course challenge fee which is equal to the cost of one CCV credit hour. There is no
additional cost for the credits received through course challenge. You can challenge up to four CCV

Course Challenge is a Good Option for You If You

  • Learned on your own through in-service workshops, online courses, trainings, or self-study
  • Have gained learning that is equivalent to a course offered at CCV
  • Are confident you have the knowledge necessary to cover the course material
  • Have discussed this option and have gotten approval from a CCV advisor


Ask a CCV Advisor, contact the Office of Prior Learning Assessment at 802-828-4064 or, or attend a free information session. Information sessions are frequently offered either at CCV academic centers or through webinars.
