May require chairperson’s evaluation of scores and student’s credentials, including high school transcript and record of laboratory work. Evaluation Of Credentials For Credit You may earn credit by departmental evaluation of your credentials when such learning can be documented as substantially equivalent to a Del Mar course. Credit will be accepted and applied from the following: • Nontraditional transcripts (armed forces schools, real estate boards, American Institute of Banking, hospital schools, cosmetology schools) • State or national board exams (Vocational Nurse Education, Registered Nurse Education, Radiologic Technology, Respiratory Therapy, Surgical Technology) • Experience in business, military administration and industry • High school programs or military training included in written articulation agreements with the College. Policies And Procedures For Earning Credit It’s important to understand the policies and procedures for credit by exam and evaluation of credentials. Policies Only if you are currently enrolled or are a former Del Mar College student are you eligible to apply for credit. Informal evaluation will be done free of charge. Credit by exam - College Board Advance Placement (AP), College Board Achievement Exam (SAT II), College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Support (DANTES) will be accepted as “credit only” (CR) and will not affect your Grade Point Average (GPA). Only an “A” or “B” grade receives credit for departmental exams. Grade points are given for a departmental exam and a footnote indicating that credit was obtained by examination will be indicated on your transcript. Credit earned by evaluation of credentials will be determined by the pass/fail method. No grade other than “CR,” the number of credit hours, course number and title are recorded on your transcript. Examinations offered at Del Mar College can be retaken only after six months have elapsed. Some departmental examinations cannot be retaken. Credit by examination satisfies degree requirements in the same way as credit earned by passing courses, except that it cannot be used to satisfy the 25 percent of semester credit hours earned at Del Mar College, which is the residency requirement for graduation. Credit may not be earned by examination for most performance oriented courses, such as music ensembles, drama productions, dance performances, radio-television shows, speech competitions, physical activities, etc. Procedures Obtain a petition to record credit in the Registrar’s Office or the appropriate academic department. If necessary, have the petition signed by the department chairperson. Pay the required fee at the Business Office. Take the test or present documentation for evaluation. If credit is granted, the results will be forwarded by the department chairperson, to the dean and to the Registrar’s Office. You can get more detailed information about testing procedures from the Testing Office at the Multiservice Center or both the East and West Campus Student Enrollment Centers. Fees A statement of testing fees and evaluation charges is available at the Business Office and the East and West Campus Student Enrollment Centers.
