Exams have been developed by Lincoln College faculty which can be completed by students to earn credits for requirements of any degree or major.  Students who wish to take a Challenge Exam are required to have experience in the subject area that they want to “challenge.” Exams are graded on a Pass/No Pass basis and are recorded on the student’s academic transcript. Students who do not pass the Challenge Exam are not eligible to re-take the exam or petition for credit for the course through prior learning assessment. A Challenge Exam fee is required and will be charged at $100.00 per credit hour not to exceed $300.00 per course challenged.

Information for each exam may be obtained directly from academic advisors, the Associate Dean of the Center for Adult Learning, or the Dean of Academic Affairs-Normal Campus.
