Earn Credit for What You Already Know

Students may earn credit for certain courses by completing the requirements. This may mean writing papers or taking exams covering the content of a course. The college does not guarantee the transferability to other colleges of credit earned this way.

Credit by examination in a course is not granted during a semester in which a student is enrolled in that course. Credit is not granted in a course in which a student has reached placement in a higher level course in the same discipline at MCC or another accredited college. Grades of S or U are recorded for students taking tests developed by the divisions of the college or adopted for division use, but no grade points are awarded.

Financial Aid does not pay for Credit by Exam. Credit by Exam is billed according to the number of credit hours attached to the course.

Mott Community College will award up to a total of 16 credits for Credit by Exam.
