Institutional Credit-by-Exam

Students who have been admitted to the College may receive credit for courses through departmental examinations. Applications for this type of credit are available from the Registration and Admissions Office and must be approved first by the appropriate academic department. Subsequently, the registration must be completed at the Registration and Admissions Office and fees need to be paid by each term’s published deadline (Last day to withdraw with a “W” grade; register for institutional credit-by-exam).

Credits for departmental examination are not included in any computation of credit load for full-time or part-time student status. Institutional Credit-by-Exam (iCBE) will become a part of the student’s permanent record at the conclusion of the term in which it is awarded. Grades of A, B, C or D will be assigned for college credits earned by examination and will be computed in the student’s GPA. A fee will be charged for each examination administered.
