Validation Exams


Academic credit for college-level proficiency may, in special cases, be established for formal study done in other than an accredited institution by validation exam. Only full-time students are eligible. A written statement submitted to the registrar detailing the basis of their experience is required.

A student must obtain approval from the registrar and the adviser or department head in the area concerned. Validation examinations are not permitted for courses previously failed or audited. A fee is charged for each examination taken. Students should check with the Registrar's Office for procedures and appropriate forms.
