Credit-by-Exam

If you feel you have a mastery of a particular subject, you can take an exam to receive credit instead of taking a credit course.

General Information

  • You must be enrolled at least one full semester at TCC and be enrolled at TCC during the semester that the exam is being taken.
  • The successful completion of a departmental exam will result in a grade of credit ("CR"), which will not affect your grade point average.
  • There is a $25 transcript posting fee (per course).
