Credit by Demonstrated Mastery Overview Image

Credit Demonstrated by Mastery

  • Credit by Demonstrated Mastery (CDM) is a process through which a student can earn credit for a high school course without enrolling in the course.  This eliminates seat time for students and frees up time for students to take other courses or even to graduate early.  

    The threshold for achieving CDM is set at a high level in order to ensure that students have the knowledge needed to be successful in future studies.

    Students should contact their school counselor if they are interested in learning more about CDM or to start the process.
