Alternative Credit

Many students entering the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) bring a depth of knowledge in specific subjects which has been gained through life experiences or a variety of areas of study. Students who have been accepted and enroll as CSI students may convert this learning into alternative credit. CSI provides students several opportunities to receive undergraduate credit on the basis of satisfactory standardized testing performance or challenging courses in one or more of the areas listed under the table of contents heading. For a full course list of Alternative Credit option see the most recent CSI Academic Catalog.

The following information is provided by CSI to help students understand the types of alternative credit methods, the credit conversion process, and the resources readily available from our institution. It is our goal at CSI to help students experience a smooth transition in meeting their educational credit planning needs.

It is the student’s responsibility to submit their official alternative credit examination results to the CSI Registrar's Office in order to determine validity dates.
