Available Challenge Examinations
Currently enrolled, curriculum-placed students may challenge a TCC course by taking the final examination for the course with the approval of the division dean and the program head/discipline faculty. Before seeking approval to take a challenge examination, a student should be prepared to show evidence that s/he has attained equivalent knowledge and skills through post-secondary life/work experience or non-credit programs and courses.
Student obtains permission from the discipline faculty or program head using the Application for Credit by Exam or Previous Non-Collegiate Training or Experience. A separate form is needed for each course challenged.
