    Honors Diploma students and Scholarship Distinction students must take final assessments in all required courses in the respective program.

    Course Competency Exam

    Repeating a Course for Grade

    A student may retake a Valley High School, Valley Southwoods, or Walnut Creek Campus course at any site. Both grades will be shown on the transcript, and the highest grade will be used in the GPA. Credit for a course can be awarded only once, and a student cannot gain additional credit or lose credit by repeating a course where credit was already earned.

    Audit

    Students may choose to take any course not offered for DMACC credit on an audit (no credit-no grade) basis. This option may not be applied to any of the 5.5 required credits each semester. The audit decision must be made prior to the semester in which the course is taken.
