Departmental Exams

Departmental Exams

Advanced Standing credit may be earned at Northeastern State University through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject examinations and through Departmental Examinations. Tests covering many course subjects are available to students who acquire knowledge and skill outside the classroom.

The amount of advanced standing credit (including CLEP, Departmental Exams, correspondence and extension classes) that may be awarded shall not exceed one-half of the total semester hours required at the lower-division level and not more than one-half of the total semester hours required at the upper-division level.

Advanced Standing credit will be posted on the student's transcript after the student has earned 12 semester hours at NSU. Credit earned is a "P" for passing. Advanced Standing is not considered residence work nor will it count toward financial aid eligibility. Advanced Standing credit posted on transcripts from other Oklahoma state supported colleges will transfer to NSU under the same conditions as other credits transfer from those colleges.

Departmental Examinations are given by appointment only. The testing fee is $5 per credit hour. Students may only take the examination once. There are absolutely no retakes.

Credit

Credit earned is posted on the student's transcript after the student has earned 12 semester hours at NSU and paid a $15 per credit hour transcript posting fee. Credit earned is designated by a "P" for passing. Departmental Examinations cannot be used for the Academic Forgiveness Repeat Policy.
