CREDIT BY PROFICIENCY EXAMINATION
A student who previously attempted a course or is currently enrolled in a course may not use the credit by examination option for that course. Students may attempt to earn credit by examination in a specific course only once, regardless of whether the examination is passed or failed. Students who have earned a letter grade ?A-F? in a course may not challenge the course by examination under the forgiveness policy. A total of 30 semester hours of credit by examination may be applied to an undergraduate degree.
Non-degree students who possess a bachelor?s degree or higher, who are participating in an approved teacher education program, and who demonstrate significant teaching experience, may take one or two courses amounting to no more than nine semester hours of their course work through the credit-by-examination option. Students must be enrolled in UWF at the time the exam is given.
