Test Out Course Waiver
This policy has been enacted to allow students who wish to waive a course to do so by showing competency in that course. This competency can be shown through a variety of means, but will generally be earned by taking the final exam for the course and earning at least a C+. The intent of this policy is to allow students the opportunity to test out of a course for which they feel they already possess the knowledge or skills to pass. Students who earn a C+ or better on the final exam of a course will be considered to have met course completion requirement and will receive credit to be applied toward the 22 credits required to graduate. Exams will be administered during specified dates below in the counseling office. Credit earned through our waiver policy will not be factored into cumulative GPA.
Two test out opportunities are available each year (before 1st and before 2nd semester). Specific test out dates are posted below. In order to test out of a course, be sure to meet the sign-up deadline.
Opt-Out TEST date: The May 16 test out date has been canceled. Students who have signed up for the test out will be emailed when a new date has been set.
