- Complete a request for Credit by Exam form.
- Pay a fifty dollar ($50) examination fee in Records and Registration or at the Center office.

- If a grade of “A”, “B”, or “C” is earned, course and grade information will be added to the student’s academic record.
- Grades of “D” and “F” are not satisfactory for credit by exam. If such grades are earned, no course entry will be made on the student’s academic record.
