Guidelines for obtaining Credit by Examination at A-B Tech
Students who can provide tangible evidence of preparation to challenge a course, such as a transcript of similar college-level credits, record of military study, certification or license, standardized test scores or written statements from employers regarding training or directly related work experience indicating that they may be proficient in a subject, may request credit by examination.
A written request must be made to the appropriate department chairperson on a form obtained from the Office Records & Registration. This test must be administered immediately after the 10 percentage point of the class in the semester. Examinations are comprehensive and must be approved by the supervisor of the instructor administering the exam. The examination may be oral, performance, written, or a combination of these methods.
To receive credit by examination, the score must be above average (“A” or “B”). A grade of “A” or “B” will be posted on the transcript of the student who successfully completes the examination. The decision of the examining instructor is final. No student may request a second test for Credit by Examination in the same course or request Credit by Examination in a course after receiving any recorded grade for that course. Exceptions must be approved by the Vice President of Instructional Services.
Any exceptions to these procedures must have prior written approval by the appropriate Department Chairperson, Division Dean, and the Vice President of Instructional Services.
For more information about Credit by Examination, contact our Registrar's Office at email@example.com.
Please note that Credit by Examination is a separate process from the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) test for college credit. For more information about CLEP testing, please go to the CLEP Exam and Credit article.
