Challenge Examinations

Students who believe they are eligible to establish credit for courses because of superior preparation may apply to take challenge examinations. Application should be made on a School of Graduate Studies petition form to the instructor of the course and must be approved by the student’s department and the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies before it may be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. If the application is approved, a committee of that department will administer the examination and will report a grade of either Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory. Challenge examinations will not be permitted for courses which were audited or for courses which were dropped, nor will they be permitted for a student who is not currently enrolled. Certain fees may apply.
