Advanced Credit Exam

Matriculating Graduate students who wish to obtain credit for knowledge in a field essential to their program of study but acquired by means that preclude formal transfer credit and can demonstrate evidence of expertise are eligible to apply for an Advanced Credit Examination as determined by the department. Students who have been awarded eight (8) transfer credit hours are not eligible for Advanced Credit Examinations. Students who petition for an Advanced Credit examination must request permission during the first week of classes in which they are enrolled. Such examinations must be administered during the first two weeks of the semester. Grading for Advanced Credit Examinations is pass only. Exams are graded before the end of the third week of the semester. Successful completion of an Advanced Credit Examination results in the listing on the student’s permanent record of the course equivalent, with the notation “credit by examination,” and the amount of credit granted. Advanced Credit Examinations are not repeatable.
