UWF Course Credit By Proficiency

UWF also offers credit for specific courses through a proficiency examination (or assessment) as determined by the academic department. Students should contact the academic department to make arrangements for an examination (or assessment) of proficiency to be given.

A student who previously attempted a course or is currently enrolled in a course may not use the credit by proficiency option for that course. Students may attempt to earn credit by proficiency in a specific course only once, regardless of whether the examination (assessment) is passed or failed.

Students must be enrolled in UWF at the time the proficiency is assessed (exam is given) and credit is awarded.
