Credit by Exam

Credit by examination offers students a valuable opportunity to showcase their knowledge and potentially earn college credit, saving time and money. Students can show expertise in a subject without having to take a traditional course!

Benefits of Credit by Exam

Credit by exam can provide a more flexible college experience by allowing students to take more advanced coursework, skip introductory classes, or explore new subjects. It can also save students money by reducing the number of courses they need to take. This can be especially beneficial for students aiming to graduate early or lower education costs.
