Revised Credit By Exam Supports High School/SRJC Articulation

by Eve Nighswonger

In November 2009, the Board of Trustees approved a revised Credit by Examination procedure that high school students opportunities to earn college credit for high school CTE courses that are articulated with SRJC courses. High school articulation with SRJC has been established — or is in development — in the following disciplines:
Automotive Technology
Diesel Technology
Cisco Networking
Web Design
Digital Filmmaking
3-D Animation, and
Geospatial Technology.
Once articulation is established, SRJC faculty may designate high school teachers to proctor Credit by Exam at the high school sites. The residency requirement is waived, so students need not be concurrently enrolled in a SRJC credit course. In addition, students are exempted from any fees associated with Credit by Exam, including the health fee. This revised policy engages high school students early in their career and encourages them to pursuer higher education at SRJC. The District will also benefit from being able to fill second level courses with students who are career focused and have demonstrated mastery in introductory CTE courses.
