Credit by Exam

Albany State University

Any Albany State University student who believes he or she is proficient in an academic subject may wish to attempt credit by exam by taking either a challenge test or a CLEP test. Each student is encouraged to consult with his or her academic advisor before testing.

Credit by examination may not be awarded in courses for which the student has already earned a grade (A, B, C, D, F, WF). Additional information is available in the catalog.


Challenge tests for academic credit are under the control of each division or department chairperson. All inquiries should be directed to the division or department chairperson in which the course is taught.


College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests are CollegeBoard standardized tests administered by personnel in the Testing Center.
