Credit by Examination

Students may ask to challenge any course not ending in 90 - 99 by completing a Credit by Examination form and presenting it to the appropriate department or the instructor of the course being challenged.  It is up to the discretion of the department or instructor to decide which courses can be challenged, testing method and grading procedures. 

Return the Credit By Examination form to Testing Services to register for the exam.  The fee is $40 per credit hour and must be paid prior to taking exams.
