Challenge Exams & Credit by Examination

If you feel your background, education, and experience provide sufficient knowledge in a subject area, you may take a course challenge exam. Earning credit through challenge examinations is equivalent to passing a cumulative, end-of-the-term examination.

Not every course or student is eligible for challenge exams. Check with your instructional department or division and the ACC catalog for available classes and eligibility requirements.

Below is a list of some courses that are eligible for course challenge credit. Contact your department directly if you don't see it listed here.
