Advanced Standing by Examination

Up to 33 semester credits may be earned by any combination of the following programs:

  1. ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMINATIONS

    Students may receive credit for courses administered by the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board. The determination of the exact course equivalence for AP credit will be made by the registrar in consultation with faculty in the appropriate discipline.

  2. CREDIT BY EXAMINATION

Students with a strong academic background may petition the provost to take any course by examination. The student’s petition must have the approval of the student’s advisor, the faculty member who teaches the course, and the division chair in whose division the course is located. The grade earned on the exam will be recorded on the student’s transcript. Academic credit for the course will be granted for a grade of “D” or better. A non-refundable fee per credit hour must be paid prior to taking the exam.
