Credit by Departmental Examination

In subjects for which College-Level Examinations (CLEP) are not available, department chairs may arrange to give examinations to qualified applicants. 

Applicants for credit by departmental exam must:

  1. Complete an Application for Admission.
  2. Obtain a form for Request by Departmental Exam from the appropriate department chair.
  3. Have the completed form approved by the department chair.
  4. Take the completed and approved form to the Cashier’s Office and pay application and exam fees.
  5.  Return the form to the department chair and arrange a time to take the exam. 


  • Credit by Departmental Exam is graded on a pass/fail basis and does not affect the student’s GPA at AACC.
  • Passing grades will be listed on the student’s academic record as Transfer of Credit.
  • Students who fail may not repeat credit by exam, but may take the AACC course.
