Students who believe that their experience and study have trained them sufficiently to bypass a given La Salle University course may challenge that course through an end-of-course examination. (End-of-course-examinations are offered at the discretion of individual departments in the School of Arts and Sciences. End-of-course examinations are not offered for courses in the School of Business. End-of-course examinations are restricted in the School of Nursing and Health Sciences; students should contact their adviser directly.) A written request should be submitted to the Department Chair, who will then request the approval of the Dean. There is a $30 charge for each examination. Students who successfully complete the examination will receive credits for the course challenged, which will be posted on their La Salle transcripts upon receipt by the Office of Student and Accounts Receivable of a $25 per credit administrative fee. This credit is not assigned a letter grade, nor is it computed in determining the student’s cumulative academic index.
AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (ACE) APPROVED COURSES
Students who have successfully completed educational programs and seminars approved by the American Council on Education’s Program on Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction (PONSI) may be eligible to receive credit. This credit is not assigned a letter grade, nor is it computed in determining the student’s cumulative academic index. A written request with documentation of course completion should be forwarded to the Dean’s Office for evaluation.
