Credit by Examination
University of Mobile allows students the opportunity to earn course credit by examination in specified circumstances. A maximum of 30 semester hours of credit by examination may be awarded. Credit obtained in this manner will not be considered in the computation of GPA. Credit by examination may be awarded by 1) challenge examination, 2) College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), 3) Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations, 4) International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, and/or 5) Defense Activity for Traditional Education Support (DANTES). More information about credit by examination may be obtained from the Vice President for Academic Affairs and/or Registrar. Additional information can be viewed in the University of Mobile Catalog or on the University’s website at www.umobile.edu.
With the permission of the instructor and of the director of the center or dean of the college or school or in which the course is offered, a student may request course credit by challenge examination. The student must then apply for the challenge examination through the registrar’s office. Credit for the examination will be recorded on the transcript as challenge with the course number identified and pass/fail credit noted. No letter grade or hours attempted will be recorded.
Students who have failed a specific course may not apply to attempt a challenge examination for that course. Upon request, the Academic Affairs Committee will review extenuating circumstances. A testing fee and a fee per course will be charged for each course challenged. These fees should be paid to the Business Office prior to taking the exam.
