To apply for Credit-By-Examination the student must assess their level to determine the highest-level class they can enroll in.
For Spanish: Set up an appointment for a Spanish placement test offered at the Assessment Center. Make appointment online.
For Other Languages: Complete the Matriculation Appeal process in the Counseling Department to assess level.
After enrolling in or have successfully completed a higher-level course, students may apply for credit-by-examination for a lower
level course. Student must submit this form to the Student Services Specialist in the Admissions office 2 weeks prior to the end of
the semester and pay non-refundable fees. When student completes a higher-level course with a “C” or better and the Dean of
Admissions & Records approves the granting of credit, student will be given credit (not a grade) for a lower-level course.
Maximum credit is one class per term. Students must complete the criteria listed below to be eligible for credit-by-examination.
Students must be enrolled in a Riverside City College course. Students must fill out a new request for each additional course in the
following terms. Students may receive credit-by-examination in one course for each term in a total unit amount not to exceed 15
units. Students who are transferring to a 4-year institution are encouraged to consult with a counselor prior to applying for credit-
by-examination. Students may not receive credit for levels 3N, 8, 11 or 12 through the Credit-by-Examination process.
