Both CBC and the CS department recognize various non-traditional programs and will possibly award a student college credit and/or placement in advanced classes. In accordance with the CBC Non-Traditional Credit Polity, the CS department provides two methods for earning non-traditional credit and/or placement: Passing a challenge test or presenting proof of a current industry certification.
