Credit By Exam


Marylhurst recognizes there are several ways undergraduate students can earn credits for their previous experiential non-credit learning; one of these pathways is through external examination programs.  Marylhurst accepts credits transferred from four nationally recognized programs noted below, applicable to any area of students' degree plans including meeting requirements for the Marylhurst Core (MCore).

You can learn details about exam subjects, passing scores, and exams that meet MCore requirements in the Registrar's current Credit by Examination Guide.

While Marylhurst accepts credit from these four programs, we do not administer CLEP, DSST, or ECE/UExcel.  NYUFLP Exams are administered on campus quarterly; registration is required through the Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment (CELA).  You can find information about Portland area test centers, and links to the specific Program websites to see detailed descriptions of exams and study suggestions on these pages:
