Credit by exam is possible in selected courses if the student has prior educational experience that parallels the skills or knowledge required to complete the course. A maximum of 25% of the credits needed for degree or certificate completion may be earned through credit by examination. Students who are planning to transfer should inquire about the credit by exam policy at their receiving institution.
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) helps students earn credit for what they already know through general academic instructions, significant independent study, or extracurricular work. By receiving a satisfactory score on a CLEP exam, students can earn credits required for their degree program at Walla Walla Community College (institutional credit awarding policies do vary, therefore, transfer students should check on the number of CLEP credits accepted by their receiving institution).
