San Diego Continuing Education to City, Mesa or Miramar College Credit by Exam

The goal of CTE Transitions Credit by Exam agreements between SDCE and San Diego City, Mesa, and Miramar College is to provide SDCE career education students with opportunities to accelerate college degree completion through the development and maintenance of agreements that allow students to earn college credit by successfully completing approved career education courses and/or programs at SDCE.

The SDCE Credit By Exam Instruction Certification form should be completed only by SDCE Instructors who have taught a course or courses tied to active CTE Transitions Credit by Exam agreements between SDCE and San Diego City, Mesa or Miramar College.

SDCE faculty teaching a Credit By Exam course:

  1. Provide CTE Transitions Program Credit by Exam information to your students within your class syllabus and during the first week of class. Ensure the students are aware they may be eligible for college credit.
  2. Fully integrate the college approved final exam or portfolio process into your course. Administer the approved final exam or portfolio to all students participating in the course.
  3. Grade all students participating in the course (final exam/portfolio grade and overall course grade)
  4. Complete a SDCE Credit By Exam Instructor Certification Form for eligible students. Submit a separate form for each eligible student.

User guide is also available to assist with completing the form,

Student eligibility requirements, list of agreements, and additional information can be found on SDCCD’s CTE Transitions SDCE Credit By Exam webpage,
