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 the exam, life experience, or any combination thereof. A credit-by-exam may be attempted only one time per course.
A $15 per credit hour, a nonrefundable fee must be paid to the Business Office before a credit-by-exam is taken.
