Credit By Exam

The Credit by Exam/Buy-Back form is used to allow students to get credit by a written or oral departmental examination without formally enrolling in the course. This policy allows students to receive credit if they have completed equivalent study at a non-accredited school or if they can present evidence of independent study and related work experience. Students cannot use this process to repeat a course to improve a grade.

To be eligible, the student must be fully matriculated with a minimum 2.00 GPA at WSU and enrolled at the University during the semester in which a credit by examination is requested. Credit by Examinations will be posted to the student’s record at the end of the term. These credits are not used in determining full-time status.
