Credit by Departmental Examination

Undergraduate matriculated students may challenge a course for credit by taking a departmental examination. Departments will determine if a course is appropriate for challenge; students should contact the instructor and/or department. If a challenge exam is available, the instructor should advise the student as to whether he or she has a reasonable chance of passing. The examination will survey knowledge of the course content and may include papers, projects, portfolios, etc.

Students will be required to pay a course-specific examination fee. Students who pass a departmental examination will receive a CR (credit) grade posted to their transcript for that course. Students will be required to pay a posting fee. Credits earned through departmental examination cannot be used to meet the minimum USU course requirement.
