Credit by Exam

Happy students have received their exam results in high school. They are cheering and celebrating.

LBCC developed articulation agreements with local school districts.  Faculty from LBCC and the high schools have worked together and agreed certain college-level courses taught at the high school are comparable to a course offered at LBCC. Students can receive college credit if the course and exam are passed within a specific score range.
