Honors Awards
- Darton State College sponsors an Honors Awards Ceremony each
spring semester. On this special occasion students who have excelled in various academic
areas and student life are recognized.
Credit by Exam
– Any student who believes he/she is proficient in an academic subject
is encouraged to apply for credit by examination. Credit by examination cannot be
awarded unless the student is enrolled at Darton State College. Credit by examination will
not be awarded in courses for which the student has already earned a grade
(A,B,C,D,F,WF). Only course credit will be awarded for successful credit by exam; no
academic quality points will be assigned. Thus, credits earned by examination will not have
any effect on the students’ grade point average.
Students may attempt credit by exam by taking either an institutional challenge exam or
a College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exam.
