Students should discuss credit options with officials at their school before taking a CTY course for credit—only your school can award credit or placement.

Not all courses are available for credit. To determine whether a course may be taken for credit, please check the "Earning School Credit" section on the course page.

To take a course for credit, just follow these steps:

  1. Browse the Online Programs catalog and select a course that may be taken for credit. Click ENROLL to begin registering.
  2. Check the “I am taking this course for school credit or may seek credit in future” box when prompted.
  3. Obtain approval to take the course for credit or placement from your school.
  4. Complete the course with CTY—and have fun!
  5. CTY will send you documents for your school to award the pre-approved credit or placement.
