Credit by Exam

Earn Credits Toward Your Degree Through Marylhurst’s “Credit by Exam” Program

We recognize that there are several ways you can earn credits toward your bachelor’s degree for previous experiential non-credit learning. One of these pathways is through external examination programs – in other words – Credit by Exam. We accept credits transferred from four nationally recognized Credit by Exam programs, applicable to any area of your degree plan including meeting requirements for the Marylhurst Core (MCore).

Which “Credit by Exam” Does Marylhurst Accept

Currently, we accept credits from four national exams: CLEP, DSST, ECE/UExcel or NYUFLP. While we accept the credits from these exams, we don’t administer tests. Contact our Office of Admissions for a list of test administers by emailing or calling 503.699.6268.

What Test Scores Do You Need?

You can learn details about exam subjects, passing scores, and exams that meet Marylhurst Core requirements in our Credit by Examination Guide.
