Challenge Exam UAFS Credit

In courses for which no CLEP examination is available, UAFS may grant credit based on examinations administered by the department. At UAFS we call this test a Challenge Exam. Students are required to take the Challenge exam before enrolling in the course. Consult the Academic Catalog for additional information.


Registration Process

Each department may have a different procedure for the Challenge Exam, but this is a generalization of the procedure:

  1. You should always start with contacting the department chair of the course you are seeking credit based on examination to determine if a Challenge Exam is appropriate and available.
  2. The Challenge Exam Registration form  (PDF will open in a new tab) must be approved and signed by the department you want to award your credit. 
  3. The Challenge Exam fee of $20 per credit hour must be paid in advance of testing.  This fee is for the credit, but there may be additional charges for the exam. Check with the department regarding any additional costs. Pay for Testing
  4. Bring a current photo ID, Challenge Exam Registration form, and a receipt to verify payment to the ASC. The ASC will then work with you to schedule a testing appointment.
