Credit by Examination

The student may receive credit for certain courses by successfully passing College Board Achievement Tests during the last semester of high school; by outstanding performance on advanced placement examinations given before the beginning of each academic year in French, German, and Spanish; and by successful performance on appropriate examinations while at Indiana University. Students who believe they are eligible for special credit because of superior preparation or independent study are urged to accelerate their college programs in this manner.

Where credit by examination is awarded by the university, that credit will be recorded simply with the grade S on the student's transcript unless the examination clearly merits an A grade. Failure to pass the examination carries no penalty and is not recorded. See "Special Credit" under "Financial Information."
