Students may earn credit in designated courses by making a satisfactory score (equivalent to at least a grade of "C") on tests prepared by PHSC instructors. A nonrefundable charge will be assessed for each examination.

Students must complete a credit-by-examination within the term they applied. Credit-by-examination cannot be granted in any course for which a grade (including "I", "NR", "P", "X", or "W") already has been awarded or for which the student is currently enrolled. Credits earned through tests prepared by PHSC will appear on the student's permanent record. Students may attempt credit-by-examination in a course no more than one time. Certain courses are not eligible for credit-by-examination. Credits earned through credit-by-examination do not satisfy the program residency requirements. Please check with your advisor for details regarding this process.
