Credit by Demonstrated Mastery

Students may earn high school credit for specific courses without spending a set number of hours taking the course in a classroom. 

Under North Carolina's Credit by Demonstrated Mastery, or CDM, option qualified students may "test out" of a course if they have already mastered the content.

This program provides another opportunity for students to learn new content, challenge themselves with the next level of rigor in a subject, and even graduate early. 

CDM is open to all students and does not replace existing accelerated pathways, such as the AIG program.

Go to WCPSS' site about CDM for the required forms and more information about the process.
