Equivalency Credit

  • Most graduation course requirements are met by successfully completing specified courses; however, some requirements may be met by successfully completing equivalency courses.

    Important points to remember:

    • An equivalency course must be completed in its entirety in order for “equivalency credit” to be granted.
    • No course shall be worth more than the credit it has been assigned. For instance, a semester course which is .5 credits may not be worth more than .5 credits.
    • Equivalencies may not satisfy college admission requirements. Please check with the individual colleges for clarification.

    The following list indicates the approved courses that may be used to meet graduation requirements:
