Other Types of Credit
Special Examination for Credit
Application must be made to the registrar for permission to take a special examination. To qualify for permission to take such an examination, an applicant must be enrolled full-time at Shepherd University and be recommended by the department chair and the instructor concerned. Examinations will not be given for courses in which the student has obtained a low grade previously.
Applicants must pay a fee for each special examination. A receipt for the payment of the fee must be obtained from the Business Office. No money will be refunded if any examination is failed. Upon successful completion, the student will receive the hours credit for the course with no letter grade designated. This will not affect the quality point average of the student.
