Credit by Exam


What is Credit by Examination?

Students may earn academic credit in certain subjects by passing recognized exams that assess the student's knowledge in those subject areas. These college credit examinations are similar to final or end-of-course examinations for undergraduate courses offered by colleges and universities. Only select exams and associated possible credit awards are recognized by TROY University. A listing of the accepted exams and possible credit can also be found in TROY's undergraduate catalog.

Which exams does TROY accept?

Credit is allowed for DANTES, CLEP general and subject exams, Advanced Placement exams, IB, and AICE examinations as approved by the Academic Council and department chairs. The number of credits allowed for satisfactory performance on the general examinations may be reduced by the amount of credit the student has previously earned in the subject matter areas covered.
