Proficiency Exams

A student is considered proficient in a given area when she/he has achieved a high level of competency in a specific skill or field of knowledge.  Occasionally, students may already possess the knowledge and skills that are the intended outcomes of a particular course.  For these individuals, Mid-State offers proficiency exams in select courses.  A student may take a proficiency exam if they are not enrolled in the course or are enrolled but the course has not yet started.  Successful completion of such exams results in the granting of credit for the course and a grade of CE (Credit by Examination).  A proficiency exam may only be taken prior to the start of a course.  A non-refundable fee of 25% of the tuition for the course is assessed for each proficiency exam taken. Please contact your counselor for more information about proficiency exams.  The list of existing proficiency exams is shown below.
