The Testing Office and some departments offer tests throughout the academic year. It is important to meet with an advisor to review which test you should take. Separate fees are charged for each test. Refer to the "Testing Schedule" for test dates offered at CSUDH by the Testing Office.
Some courses may be taken by Credit-by-Examination. To receive credit-by-examination you must register for the course. It is important to read the conditions and restrictions in the current University Catalog. A “Petition for Credit-by-Examination” must be filed by the dates designated by the Registrar. Forms may be obtained from the Admissions and Records Office, WH C290.
Students wishing to earn credit by examination for English 110, English 111, English 350 or English 352 must contact the English Department in LCH E-315 or phone (310) 243- 3322.
Students who are unsuccessful in their attempt to earn Credit-by-Examination may remain in the class, complete the work, and be awarded credit upon successful completion of course requirements. Students who pass the examination may NOT remain in the class to earn grades better than those earned on the examination. They may, however, retake the course in a later semester to improve grades lower than “C” in accordance with the Repeat and Cancel Policy.
Additional information on earning Credit-by-Examination appears in the current University Catalog.
Graduate students in the English Department (Literature Option) are required to pass the Graduate Exercise. Students are expected to fulfill this requirement at the start of their graduate work.
The Graduate Exercise will be offered twice a year on the Thursday before the spring and fall semester classes begin. It will consist of analyzing a short poem or passage. Students may bring a dictionary. Graduate students who have completed their prerequisite courses should register for the Graduate Exercise in the English department office, LCH E315.
