Examination and Portfolio Assessment Credit - Detail

Through several methods, students may earn academic credit for college-level learning by taking an examination in the appropriate area. Credit granted usually can be used to satisfy specific and general degree requirements. Refer to the section in this catalog titled Bachelor Degree Requirements.

The credit by examination procedures are reviewed and updated annually. A current brochure is available from the Office of Admission; information is also available online at www.admissions.tcu.edu.

On a limited basis, portfolio assessment is another method used to earn academic credit for college-level learning. A portfolio is a formal, written document including a résumé, detailed personal history, description of skills and competencies, and documentation to support the student's request for credit. Only limited credit has been approved using this method. More information on the portfolio assessment program may be obtained by contacting Office of Extended Education at 817.257.7130.
