CVTC offers proficiency exams for students who may have already acquired the knowledge and skills that are the intended outcomes of a particular course. Successful completion of such exams results in the granting of credit for the course. A minimum "B" grade is required to pass most exams. The credit for the course is entered on the student's record and appears on his/her transcript as "PE." Credits obtained through the proficiency process are not included in your overall grade point average and are not included in the active credits for the term and therefore cannot be used when determining financial aid eligibility or enrollment status.
Prior to the exam, students must complete the Proficiency Exam Application and turn it in on the day of the exam
Proficiency Exam Fees
There is a minimum 2 credit charge. Additional fees may be assessed for software license fees.
