Credit by Proficiency Examination

In some departments you may be permitted to progress to more advanced work in a particular program if you can demonstrate college-level competency.

If you have qualifications from a previous education or job training you may be able to earn credit in certain courses by successfully passing an exam that will test your knowledge related to the learning outcomes of that course. 

Marion Technical College (MTC) recognizes and offers two types of credit by proficiency examinations:  a college administered Proficiency-for-Credit Exam (credit-by-exam)  and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).   The following is a list of courses (by academic department) that MTC offers as credit-by-exam.  These exams are generated and proctored by MTC faculty. 
There is a limit of MTC credit hours that may be earned through exam, life experience, or any combination thereof.  A credit-by-exam may be attempted only one time per course.

A $15 per credit hour, nonrefundable fee must be paid to the Business Office before a credit-by-exam is taken.

Scheduling the Credit by Exam:
Students must complete the credit-by-exam form and pay the fee (either $45, for a 3 credit hour course, or $60 for a 4 credit hour course) for the exam at the Business Office prior to taking the exam.  The student must contact Terri Stark to schedule an appointment to take the credit by exam.  Terri Stark can be reached in person at Room 161G in Technical Education Building, or by email at starkt@mtc.edu, or telephone at 740-389-4636 Ext 332.  The student must bring his or her receipt to the scheduled testing appointment.
