This is designed to free

students from taking courses where

content has already been mastered.

Students enrolled in good standing may

request to challenge certain courses

listed in the college catalog. The Vice

President of Academic Affairs and the

course instructor determine whether a

challenge is appropriate on an individual

course basis; and they determine the

type of examination to be given. A

non-refundable fee is assessed for

each challenge. Challenge credits may

not transfer to other post-secondary

institutions.

Life Experience -

have documented military or industrial

training and/or life experience may

request an evaluation to determine if

college credit can be assigned. It is

the student’s responsibility to provide

documentation of learning experiences

that is complete and sufficient for

assessment.

The Registrar’s Office uses a number

of nationally-recognized resources as

guides to the process of evaluating and

assigning credits to student learning

experiences. Life experience credits are

limited to 15 credits for all degrees with

the exception of Technical Studies which

has a limit of 22 credits.
