Credit-by-Exam / Experience

Confident in your knowledge of a particular subject?

You may be able to take one of our departmental exams to show your mastery of that subject.

If you score well, you can earn credit, so you do not have to take the credit course.

Learning experiences include:

  • Advanced or technical courses
  • Work experience or job training
  • Other non-traditional learning experiences

Credit-by-Exam is not available for all of our courses, so be sure to check the list of our available exams.

How much credit can I apply?

Credit earned cannot exceed 40 percent of the technical courses required for an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
