Credit By Exam

Students expecting to take the Credit by Exam should not enroll in the course for which they are seeking credit (CHEM 100, 110, 130, 135, 330/331, 335/336). The student must be enrolled at KU for the period during which the exam is administered and credit is awarded. Transfer students that took organic chemistry 1 and/or 2 at the junior college level may take the Credit by Exam for junior/senior credit. For additional information, please contact Deanne Arensberg.

Credit by Exam may not be taken to supersede a "D" or "F" grade of the same course. A letter grade of "A", "B", "C" ,“D” or CR will be assigned, depending on what the student requests. There is no record made for those students who are not awarded credit.

The Chemistry department has partnered with KU Testing services as our official proctor for exams. Contact Deanne Arensberg at either 785-864-4647 or for additional information and scheduling.
