If circumstantial evidence, such as experiential learning, indicates the probability of special technical aptitude or knowledge on the part of the petitioning student, a written, oral, and/or performance examination will be developed and administered. Students who score 80% or higher on all components of the examination will be awarded a grade of "EX" for the course. The "EX" indicates credit by examination. The "EX" carries no grade points, but the number of credit hours normally assigned to the course will be awarded. A student is eligible to challenge a course only one time. The credit by exam must be taken before the first day of the class in which the student is enrolled. Read More...
