Competency Exam Program provides a unique opportunity for qualified individuals
to prove their knowledge levels and acquire college credit by passing exams in a wide range of fields,
including business, technology, arts and sciences..
Applicants do not have to
travel or appear in person at an exam center. The exam can be taken from any
computer. The exam duration is for a specific period of time. If the individual
does not finish in time the test screen will end without submitting the result
and a retest will be required.
Each test covers all the
courses in a segment of the particular degree program. (For example; the
Programming test covers all the courses from PRO01 to PRO05)
Once the individual
qualifies for a degree, the Professor will calculate the GPA. Equal weight is
not given to each question. Certain questions may be given more weight than
others depending on the curriculum requirements of degree program. Because our
exams and processes are proprietary we do not give out lists of questions or
answer keys under any circumstances.
If the student’s assessment has determined that he/she has
earned credits through experience and/or prior learning the submission of
research assignments, coursework, and exams for those courses already mastered will not be required.
