Credit by Examination

Metropolitan College Policy

Metropolitan College recognizes specific subject examinations offered by two national standardized testing programs: College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Dantes Subject Standardized Tests (DSST). Both examination programs are approved by the American Council on Education and provide students with the opportunity to obtain college credit by examination.

Students are allowed to receive up to two years of undergraduate academic credit by examination for knowledge obtained outside the classroom. These standardized exams are offered and recognized nationally by many colleges and universities.

A limited number of waiver examinations are offered in computer sciences for undergraduate degree candidates with specific knowledge in a particular area.

Students should contact Metropolitan College Undergraduate Student Services at 617-353-2980 for more information and a listing of the examinations acceptable for credit.
