Course Exam Challenges provide students an opportunity to earn college credit by demonstrating proficiency in the content of a course through a departmental exam. Students may request a Course Challenge when there is no CLEP examination available. Developmental courses and Independent Study cannot be challenged.
Academic departments determine courses that are eligible for challenge and the competencies necessary for the student to demonstrate for awarding credits. Course exam challenge credits earned do not apply to residency requirements. The process is online. Credit is awarded upon the successful completion of the exam and is processed by the Office of the Registrar.
