Challenge for Credit

If you believe that you have grounds for challenging the content of a course, you should begin with a visit to the Student Advisor. Together, you will review the process which will require you to submit in writing your rationale as to why you have "mastery of course content". If it is determined that you are eligible, you will then be registered to take the course by "Special Assessment". You will be given some form of evaluation in lieu of the entire course. The Faculty member appointed as your instructor would work out the details of this requirement.

For additional information, please refer to the Credit by Special Assessment section of the University Calendar. For more information on the fees associated with credit by special assessment, please refer to Fees Payment Guide in the University Calendar.
