Coopersmith (NCCRS Credit by Exam)

Coopersmith is essentially an independent learning program followed by a final exam. You’ll prepare using their materials and take their final exam. Passing the final exam is the only thing you need to do to get college credit. The cost is low, at only $50 per credit. Most courses are 3–4 credits.

NCCRS (The National College Credit Recommendation Service) is a third party credit evaluator that evaluates all types of learning that happens outside of a college. A company may market and sell courses “for college credit” that have been evaluated by NCCRS. While there are almost 1,500 colleges that “may consider” NCCRS credit, only when a company has a formal written partnership with a college should this credit be considered transferable. Unlike ACE/Credly, there is no NCCRS transcript or holding place to set your credit, so if a company goes out of business before you need the credit, it may be lost. Advice for using NCCRS is to only do so when your teen will pursue a degree with a partner college (see the HS4CC list) because most colleges do NOT accept NCCRS credit. HS4CC List of NCCRS Partners

(effective January 2020, Charter Oak State College no longer accepts Coopersmith for college credit)

Coopersmith is essentially an independent learning program followed by a final exam. You’ll prepare using their materials and take their final exam. Passing the final exam is the only thing you need to do to get college credit.

The cost is low, at only $50 per credit. Most courses are 3–4 credits.

The format is simple:  read the content, study on your own, take the test.  Coopersmith uses the online web-proctoring service Proctor U to supervise your exam. (proctoring fee expected)

Coopersmith offers SO MANY CLASSES. I found a few courses in the NCCRS database that weren’t on the website, but upon asking, Coopersmith assured me that I could take any of their classes even if was title that wasn’t on their website.

Coopersmith classes are all slightly different. Some are multiple choice, others are short answer. Members report that Coopersmith is always happy to answer questions about the exam format.

This list is from the NCCRS database listing all of their courses approved for college credit.
