Testing Out

Testing Out

Credit by Examination: Credit may be granted in selected courses to entering freshmen and other students who pass appropriate departmental examinations.

Students wanting to TEST OUT of a class and do so before the class begins may be charged a $50 assessment fee. Students who pass the test at the level designated by the department in which the test is taken will be given credit for the class. Students not passing at the designated level will not receive credit and the $50 fee is non-refundable. Please contact the appropriate division chair to see if the $50 fee applies to the class you are testing out of.

Students who are currently enrolled in a class and attempt to test out during the semester will still be required to pay regular tuition for that class. Scholarships do not cover tuition for credit earned through testing out. Financial aid is not available.

For classes that are eligible for testing out, please contact the division chairs as listed below:
