Education - Credit by Examination

Credit by examination is one of the fastest, easiest, and least expensive ways to earn college credit. Adult learners can usually acquire many semester hours credit through standardized tests with little or no additional preparation. First time and prospective students should also look into this option, since introductory-level course exams are the most widely available.

Most institutions follow the recommendations of The American Council on Education (ACE) regarding the type and amount of credit awarded for examinations. The website is geared toward the needs of colleges, universities and commercial trainers more than prospective students, who will have to get hold of their book - Guide to Educational Credit by Examination to learn what is available. Most college guidance offices and libraries will have this book or it's even more expensive cousin National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs (2004-2005)
