Credit By Exam


Marylhurst recognizes there are several ways undergraduate students can earn credits for their previous experiential non-credit learning; one of these pathways is through external examination programs.  Marylhurst accepts credits transferred from four nationally recognized programs noted below, applicable to any area of students' degree plans including meeting requirements for the Marylhurst Core.

These exams are scored in accordance with uniform guidelines by independent evaluators, and credits are received in accordance with the Registrar's transfer credit policy as articulated in the current Credit by Examination Guide.

While Marylhurst accepts credit from these four programs, we do not administer CLEP, DSST, or ECE/UExcel.  NYUFLP Exams are administered on campus quarterly; registration is required through the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment (CELA).  For information about locating exam centers, and links to the specific Program websites for detailed descriptions of exams and study suggestions, please go to these pages:
