Students may challenge certain courses if they feel they can make a satisfactory score on a test covering the course material. The college requires a nonrefundable testing fee for each test a student attempts. If a student passes an exemption test for a required and or an elective course, the credit hours for that course will be included on his official college transcript. The letter grade of "E" assigned to an exempted course does not change the student's grade point ratio.
Students enrolled at York Technical College may apply to receive credit for Advanced Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject area tests for which there is a comparable York Technical College course. Students who wish to receive such credit must arrange to have their AP or CLEP scores sent from the College Board Testing Service to the Academic Records Office. For further information, students should contact the Academic Records Office.
Computer-based CLEP examinations are administered at York Technical College in the Assessment Center, located in A Building Room 203. Candidates can take a computer-based CLEP examination at one of the designated appointment times and immediately receive their scores upon completion of the exam. The CLEP FEE IS NONREFUNDABLE AND CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER ADMINISTRATION DATE. CLEP Information for Candidates brochures are available in the Assessment Center. Additional information is available online at Collegeboard.com. You also can call the Assessment Center at (803) 981-7176. Click here for MILITARY CLEP.
