These guidelines are subject to change without notice. Academic departments select examinations and determine passing scores, which follow the test titles. The credit hours awarded are the same as those earned by students who complete the equivalent course(s). The letter grade K is used to identify credit by examination and has no effect on the academic grade point average. The Registrar's office adds courses and credit hours to the academic records of enrolled students.
