Restrictions on Examination Credit

No credit for any examinations will be awarded to a student who has:

  • Taken the examination previously within the past term.
  • Earned equivalent credit through regular coursework, credit by another examination or other instructional processes, such as correspondence.
  • Earned credit previously at a level more advanced than that represented by the examination in question.

Credit will not be awarded for examinations that overlap other examinations or college-level courses. Where partial overlap exists, the amount of examination credit will be reduced accordingly.

The total amount of credit earned on the basis of externally developed tests that may be applied to a baccalaureate degree cannot exceed 30 semester units, exclusive of credit for Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and/or International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations. In no case will credit so awarded count toward residence credit.
