What is Credit-By-Examination?

Credit-By-Examination lets you 'test-out' prerequisite (aka general education) college courses like English, Sociology, or Math, instead of 'taking' college courses. For example, instead of taking a boring semester-long course with all the busy work, you could get full credit for the same course by attending as few as 4 test-prep classes and taking ONE exam.

We’ll prepare you to pass just ONE exam and receive FULL credit for an entire college class:

  • --%* pass rate.
  • Fully accredited colleges.
  • No college busywork, quizzes, research or term paper, or group projects.
  • LIVE instructors with 69 campus locations or live virtual online classes.
  • Works in all 50 states.

Our Credit-by-Examination Test-Out Program can help you earn your degree faster and for less money than you thought  possible. It is a test-prep curriculum for those interested in fast-tracking their general education courses so they can get to the core classes for their major in their college faster.
