Prior Learning Challenge Exam

Students can challenge a course by exam.  Challenge exams are designed to test for course learning outcomes. The grade for the course is the grade earned on the exam. See the academic division of the course for availability and options.  A maximum of 45 credits may be earned by challenge exam.  To find out if there is an exam for the class you wish to challenge, call 206-934-5394 for professional/technical courses (e.g., automotive, landscape horticulture, welding, etc.) and 206-934-6600 for academic courses (e.g., math, English, biology, etc.).

National, State, Industry or Professional Association Approved Training (Extra-Institutional Learning)

Certificates of Completion or other documentation proving successful completion of training/coursework from schools which are approved by national, state, industry or professional associations may be reviewed and considered for credit at South. In order to pursue this option, meet with the faculty coordinator for your program of study. You must provide copies of all relevant documents to substantiate the training/coursework.

Prior Experiential Learning Portfolio

You may be able to receive college credit for knowledge gained outside the classroom. This credit option is appropriate for persons who have acquired knowledge and skills in ways that are not covered by any other academic methods. An extensive review process is required, including a written portfolio in which the student describes what was learned, how it was learned, and how it relates to the type of learning that occurs in South courses and programs. Currently this option is only available in one of the BAS programs but South is pursuing more options for the future. A maximum of 25 percent of the required credits in any program of study may come from the credit earned through Prior Experiential Learning Portfolio.
