Credit by Examination
Selected WCCC courses may be challenged by students with permission of the instructor. Students who want to “test out” of a course
must formally register for the course and submit this credit by examination registration form to Anne Donahue, Coordinator of
Enrollment & Student Services. The examination required must be comparable to the final examination that is used to test all students
and must be completed before or during the add/drop period. The minimum level of competency that is acceptable to successfully
challenge a content area is determined by the instructor.
Students who successfully complete the requirements to challenge a course will be issued a passing “P” grade for the course, which
will be posted on the student’s transcript. The credit will not be computed in the grade point average. Courses that are being
challenged are not considered part of the student’s credit load for federal financial aid purposes. The nonrefundable fee for
challenging a course is $100 and will be reflected on your WCCC bill. This fee is charged whether the course is successfully
challenged or not.
Students who desire credit by examination must contact the Enrollment & Student Services Office and complete all relevant
paperwork before challenging the course. Students who do not meet the challenge standards will be required to complete the full
course of instruction at the regular price.
