Course by Examination

Course by examination is open to students with a GPA of 3.0 or better either in the previous semester or overall, and is limited to one per semester. Permission to take a course by examination must be obtained from the instructor, student advisor, and the Office of Undergraduate Academics by submitting a Course by Examination request in Workday Student. 

If the examination is successfully completed, the instructor who administered the examination issues a letter grade in the course. The examination must be taken prior to the start of a semester, and if the examination is not passed, the unsuccessful attempt is recorded as part of the student’s permanent record, and the student must enroll in that course in the following semester.

Submission of this approved request in WorkDay constitutes an enrollment in the course for the current semester.

A course that has already been attempted by a student cannot subsequently be taken as a Course by Examination.
