Credit Options Available Through CVHS

Three options for credit are available through Canyons Virtual High School. To register for any of these options, please click here


Original Credit Credit

Original Credit can be earned for courses taken the first time, or for courses repeated in order to improve a student's GPA.
  • No pre-tests exist which would allow students to skip course content.
  • Students must work through the course sequentially (NCAA requirement).
  • A proctored final exam must be passed with at least 60% proficiency. If necessary, tests may be taken twice per day in a proctored setting.
  • A letter grade is awarded for successfully completing the course.

Credit Recovery (Make Up) Credit

Credit Recovery (Make Up) Credit can be earned for successfully completing credit recovery courses, as long as students have previously taken an Original Credit version of the course.
  • Proctored pre-tests allow students to demonstrate knowledge and skip course content.
    • Pre-tests may only be taken once every school year.
  • Students must only complete content in modules for which they did not demonstrate competency in a pre-test.
  • Students may review all course modules.
  • A proctored final exam must be passed with at least 60% proficiency. If necessary, course finals may be taken twice per day in a proctored setting.
  • A passing (P) grade is awarded for successfully completing the course.

Test-Out Credit

Students may choose to test out of a course by taking the test out exam in a proctored setting.
  • If students pass the test with at least 60% proficiency, they earn credit with a passing (P) grade.
  • If students do not pass the test with at least 60% proficiency, they may register for either an original or credit recovery course, whichever is applicable.
  • Students may attempt to "test out" of a course no more than one time per calendar year.
