Credit by Examination
There are several possible options for obtaining course credit by examination:
- Challenge exams for specific courses are offered at Marshall University and at the Marshall Community and Technical College in many academic departments. Information can be obtained by contacting the chairperson in the relevant department.
- The Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support (DANTES), was designed for service members who need alternatives to fulfill degree requirements when classroom courses are unavailable or when work schedules or duty locations do not permit class attendance. All students are eligible to take these DSST exams.
- College Level Examination Program (CLEP) The RBA and BAS programs accept CLEP exams.
A list of currently accepted exams for both DANTES and CLEP is found here.
Further information about the CLEP program can be obtained from Marshall University’s Office of Outreach and Continuing Studies (304-696-2330).
