Advanced Standing Examinations
If you have already gained fundamental knowledge of subjects offered at the University, you may be permitted to take Advanced Standing Examinations in specific courses which, if passed with satisfactory grades, will enable you to receive degree credit. You can gain a maximum of 15 hours through Advanced Standing Examinations.
Requests for permission to take such examinations are made to the chair of the department or the Dean and there is a fee of $50.
While the University does not evaluate experiential learning portfolios, credit may be awarded for non-traditional educational programs after the completion of an appropriate advanced standing examination. Discretion for giving such an examination belongs to the individual academic department.
For complete guidelines on credit transfer policies, advanced standing examinations, and experiential learning please refer to the Academic Guide.
