Proficiency Examinations

With the prior approval of the dean of the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, and the department concerned, a student may, upon payment of a fee, take a proficiency examination in courses offered at the university. Degree credit is given for a grade of B or better, as determined by the department concerned. The grades for courses passed by this means are not computed in the cumulative grade-point average. The awarding of credits through this method is uncommon and decisions are made on a course-by-course basis. Proficiency examinations ordinarily are not allowed in the following cases:

1. after the student has failed the course

2. for courses in which the principal content is laboratory or creative work, since the course's primary value is in the student's continuing and supervised participation

3. when a student's fourth- or fifth-year program is limited as to overload

4. for military education courses

5. for minicourses
