Credit by Examination


Special arrangements may be made for credit-by-examination in certain courses by consulting the Academic Dean's Office on the Winter Haven or Lakeland campuses.

  • Students may be eligible to take an exam provided they have not recently been enrolled in a college-level course equivalent to the exam subject matter.
     
  • A fee is assessed whether the student passes or fails the exam.
     
  • Successful completion of the exam results in credit posted to the academic record.
     
  • Students planning to transfer to other institutions are responsible for determining the acceptability of all transferred credit. Credit-by-examination is generally not transferrable.
