Departmental Exams — Credit by Examination

You may already have the knowledge required for college credit.

At CCBC, we realize that many arrive to us already having gained college level learning in a subject area and mastered the content of certain courses. CCBC Departmental Examinations are the equivalent to passing a cumulative, end-of-the-term examination or a series of comparable exams. Examinations vary depending on the type of course challenged. Passing them can earn you college credit at CCBC

Departmental Exams @ CCBC help you:

  • Save Time - Accelerate your degree program by moving directly into higher-level courses
  • Save Money - Avoid the rising cost of higher education
  • Move Ahead - Place into the right classes and avoid repeating material that you’ve already learned
  • Graduate on Time - Complete your degree program if you’re a few credits shy of graduation
