We offer two ways to demonstrate your mastery of CCV course objectives: Traditional Course Challenge and Competency Based Pathway. Select a course in the CCV catalog, and with Advisor permission, you pay a one-time fee and a faculty member who teaches the course is hired to evaluate your learning in 60 days or less. Awarded credits are ungraded credits on the CCV transcript. Students may request a grade as part of the process, to ease with future transfer – although a grade will not be reflected on the transcript.

Competency Based Pathway
