Credit by Examination

ECC’s Credit by Examination Program enables students with appropriate knowledge and experience to secure college credit. Credit will be granted to student admitted to ECC who pass examinations approved by Enrollment Services and appropriate academic departments. In some instances, it may not be possible to offer credit by examinations because no relevant test exists in certain disciplines. When granted, a grade of “CR” will be entered as transfer credit on each student’s transcript.

Credit by examination may be granted for the Defense Activity for Non-traditional Education Support (DANTES) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Students interested in applying for credit by examination should contact either Enrollment Service Express Center or the appropriate academic division.
