Advanced Credit Eligibility


Only one attempt is allowed for each advanced credit exam.


To be eligible for advanced credit, you must have no established grade for the course. A 'W' for withdrawal is acceptable, but not a 'W' with a grade attached such as a 'WF' or 'WN'. To drop a course without receiving a grade, you must withdraw before the fifth week of classes.


Chemistry exams: To be eligible to take CHM 11200, you must have credit for CHM 11100 (or equivalent). To be eligible to take CHM 11600, you must have credit for CHM 11500 (or equivalent). Students who have recorded passing credit for both CHM 11100 and 11200 are eligibile to take the CHM 11600 exam. 


For each advanced credit exam you wish to take, you are required to meet with an academic advisor, have a Form 231 completed by the advisor, and bring the completed form with you to the exam. Please make sure you print the current version of the form, provided here. Your form must be filled out and signed within the academic year in which you intend to take the exam. No outdated forms will be accepted.


After meeting with your academic advisor, use the Advanced Credit Checklist attached to the Form 231 to ensure that you complete all registration steps.


If you are registered in a course for which you plan to take an advanced credit exam, you are responsible for attending and completing all work in that class until you confirm that you have passed the exam. If you do pass, you should then drop the course.
