Credit by Examination
Peninsula College grants credits to entering students based upon certain levels of performance in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Program.
In addition to standardized tests for specific course credits, in special cases you may obtain college credit for courses listed in the current catalog by passing an examination in that course, satisfying the department concerned that both content and method have been mastered adequately. This privilege is intended to evaluate informal and/or comparable education experiences that may be the equivalent of organized class work.
Peninsula College also recognizes the value of prior experiential learning and has established procedures for accrediting prior-life experience in appropriate academic disciplines. You may obtain information on this process from Student Services. This process will ensure that you will receive a meaningful educational experience in the program selected and maintain the integrity of this alternative mode for earning college credit.
