6.1.7 Challenge for Credit Examinations

When the challenge for credit process involves an invigilated examination refer to the Undergraduate Exam Request and Completion Policy, except in the case of Supplemental Exams. Supplemental Examinations are not allowed in the challenge for credit process.

6.1.7.1 Challenge for Credit Grades and Appeals

Courses taken via the challenge for credit process are recorded as CH (courses taken via challenge) on your transcript. The evaluation schemes for courses taken via the challenge for credit process can be viewed in the course syllabus.

You have one opportunity to challenge a course. If you do not successfully complete, or you fail the course taken via the challenge for credit process, you are not permitted to challenge the course a second time. You must instead register in the full course and complete it successfully in order to receive credit. If you do not successfully complete the requirements of the course taken via the challenge for credit process you will be assigned a grade of “F” (failure).

All challenge for credit grade appeals are subject to an appeals process described in Athabasca University’s Student Code of Conduct and Right to Appeal Regulations.
