Credit for Prior Learning

Students in the Surgical Technology program who possess active, current healthcare certifications issued by the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) may be eligible to receive credit for prior learning for some SUR courses. Students requesting credit for prior learning must provide evidence of their active, current NBSTSA certification(s) to the Department Chair for review.

For courses other than SUR, 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.
