The credit-by-examination program offers qualified students an opportunity to earn university credit by successfully completing examinations in areas recommended by the departments and approved by the Provost.

Students receiving the equivalent of an A or B on the examinations will be given credit for the course upon full payment of the total testing and/or recording fees involved. (Course fees are available in the academic catalog or from Student Financial Services.) Criteria to determine these letter grades will be established by each department for each examination. Departments may give students the option to have either the achieved grade of A or B or a grade of P (Pass) entered on his/her official transcript.
