Can I be exempt from some classes?

Course Exemptions

Many universities have opportunities for students to “test out” of classes. If you have previous work experience or special training that makes you proficient in certain studies, you may not have to take certain courses for those studies. Tests can be given to ensure you are already skillful in that area and the corresponding credit hours will be counted toward your bachelor degree. Military personnel and police officers are most likely to test out of certain classes, but each request is considered by academic advisors on a case-by-case basis.
