Credit by Examination

Some courses may be completed by examination. To apply for credit by examination, the student must submit an  Application for Credit by Waiver or Examination form to the appropriate Curriculum Committee. The type of test or evaluation method and the number of credits awarded will be determined by the program to which the application for credit has been made. If the application is accepted and the student successfully completes the examination, the  Registrar will record "CX" (Credit by Examination) on the transcript. No grade points will be awarded or included in calculating the grade point average.  

Applicants for credit by examination or any combination of waiver and examination must pay for the following:  

  • The cost of the examination and/or examination process;  
  • A percentage of the current per credit hour tuition rate for each credit hour attempted by examination or waiver.
