Loyola Marymount University Bulletin 2012-2013
Up one level:
A student may obtain credit by examination for selected courses as approved by the course Chairperson and student’s Dean.
To challenge an LMU undergraduate course by examination, a student must be regularly enrolled and a full-time student. A course may be challenged only once. Students may not challenge a course that is at a level more elementary than one in which they are currently enrolled or for which they have already received credit. Nor may students challenge a course for which they have previously registered until a period of one year has elapsed from the time of their original registration in the course. A challenge examination once failed may not be repeated. 100- and 200-level courses in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures may not be challenged.
A petition for receiving course credit by examination must be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. The examination carries a fee of $75, payable in advance and non-refundable.
MBA students may challenge MBA core courses only during the first semester of enrollment. A course may be challenged only once. If the student passes the challenge exam, that is equivalent to waiving the course.
