Challenge by Exams

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.
