The following guidelines for test-out exams in chemistry are in effect:

  • Credit exams for CHM 11100, 11200, 11500, and 11600 will be given during delayed registration in August, January, and mid-semester on the regular Dean of Students testing dates. Please contact the Office of the Dean of Students Testing Center at (765) 494-7690 or for further information about scheduling.

  • Any student who has not received a grade in CHM 11100, 11200, 11500, or 11600 (or any equivalent course), OR is not registered in any of these courses after the fourth week of the semester, may attempt the test-out exam.
  • Students must have recorded passing credit in a prerequisite course in order to be eligible to attempt a test-out exam for the sequence course, i.e. students must have credit in Chem 11500 (or equivalent) to take the Chem 11600 exam; or credit in Chem 11100 (or equivalent) to take the Chem 11200 exam.  Students who are currently registered in Chem 11500 or 11100, but have not yet earned a letter grade, are NOT eligible to take the Chem 11600 or 11200 exams.
  • If registered in a course for which the Credit/Placement Exam is being taken, students are responsible for attending class and completing all work in that class until they find out if they have passed.
  • A student may only attempt any chemistry test-out exam once.
