Students who can document coursework, private study, or on-the-job experiences equivalent to a Vermont Tech course may receive credit by examination. Approval by the department chairperson is required.
Documentation must be submitted to the department chairperson at least three weeks prior to the planned date of testing. After review and acceptance by the chairperson, an application for credit by examination shall be submitted along with a challenge exam fee. Upon satisfactory completion of the exam, a maximum of 12 credits may be given toward any one program. These credits are subject to advanced standing restrictions.
Challenge exams that are taken to replace failed coursework must comply with all of the above criteria and must document new coursework, private study, or on-the-job experience since the failure occurred.
