Credit by exam 2009–2010
CLEP (CBT), DANTES, Excelsior, and quiz-outs
Kansas State University Manhattan, Kansas Kansas State University encourages you to test out of courses in which you already have academic knowledge comparable to that gained in collegiate study. Three national credit by examination opportunities are available: the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES), and the Excelsior College Exams. CLEP and DANTES tests can be scheduled through the Academic Assistance Center, 101 Holton Hall, 785-532-6492. The following registration fees are paid at the time of the examination: CLEP $97 per test; , DANTES, $105 per test. Credit is awarded to students who are admitted and/or currently enrolled. If the letter grade is awarded, it will become part of your K-State GPA. This credit is considered resident credit and may be treated as prerequisites for subsequent courses. Non-graded credit by exam will not be counted against credit/no credit limits. You must complete a minimum number of university general education (UGE) credit hours at K-State. Credit-by-exam hours may be considered ‘‘transfer credits’’ for purposes of the UGE policy. Consult your advisor. Official CLEP scores can be ordered by contacting: CLEP Box 6601, Princeton, NJ 08541, , 800-257-9558, (K-State code 6334). Official DANTES scores can be ordered by contacting: DANTES, Box 6604, Princeton, NJ 08541, 877-471-9860 (K-State code 9186).

K-State students who believe their past education or experience qualifies them to gain credit for a course may take special, locally constructed examinations for many of the courses offered on campus. To quiz out of a course, you must receive permission from the head of the department in which the course is offered. In order to be eligible to quiz out of a course a student must be currently enrolled at K-State. Contact the appropriate department head for more information. Credit by examination may receive letter grades of A, B, or C or the notation “Credit, ” as determined by the granting department. The credit will be treated as resident credit.
