Challenge Exams

If you have knowledge of a subject area not covered by standardized exams (e.g., CLEP, DSST), you may be able to receive credit by taking a Challenge Exam. Credit can only be awarded if the course has not already been taken or transferred from another institution.  If you have previously taken a course and did poorly in it, you can not take a Challenge Exam to try and improve the grade.  A Challenge Exam is an exam developed by a UW-Green Bay faculty member to cover the contents of a specific course. Only UW-Green Bay students enrolled in degree or certification programs are eligible for Challenge Exams. 

To arrange a Challenge Exam:

A passing grade on the exam results in the awarding of the appropriate number of credits. Criteria for passing are determined by departmental faculty.

*$50.00 of the portion of the fee will be transferred to the S&E account of the faculty member’s budget unit who evaluates the portfolio.
