Credit for Prior Learning

Students in the Medical Assistant program wishing to receive credit for prior learning may do so by participating in challenge exams. To participate in a challenge examination for a Medical Assistant (MED) course, the student must first obtain approval from the Department Chair of the Medical Assistant program. MED challenge examinations consist of both written and practical components, and both components must be successfully completed before credit can be awarded. Challenge examinations can only be attempted once for each course and may not be taken for any courses in which the student received a failing grade in a previous term. Students may not attempt to test out of courses in which they are currently enrolled.
