Effective Fall 2017, Purdue now requires an administrative fee for credit by exam courses. The fee is $35 for current Purdue students and $55 for non-students. 

Please be sure you are ready and able to attend at the time you select for your appointment. The credit by exam fee is non-refundable, and your invoice number will be associated with your appointment. If you no-show, cancel, or reschedule your appointment, you will forfeit the fee.
