Credit by Proficiency Examination


A student may, upon submission of a petition to The Learning Center, take a proficiency examination in order to receive credit for selected courses. A $50 fee will be charged for each proficiency examination taken.

Students are advised that credits earned by examination which are acceptable at Zane State College may not necessarily be accepted for transfer credit by other collegiate institutions. A credit by examination for any course may be taken only one time. The exam must be taken prior to the completion of the first full week of the term in which the student desires to test out of a course in which he/she is presently enrolled. Students may apply for and take the test prior to enrollment. Students who fail a course will not be permitted to gain credit by completing a proficiency exam.
