Institutional Course Proficiency

Students wishing to demonstrate course proficiency may challenge selected credit courses by taking a proficiency examination. Students must meet the following criteria:

  • Be in good standing
  • Be currently enrolled at MCC and have satisfactorily completed a term at MCC
  • Not be enrolled in the course being challenged
  • Cannot have completed the course previously with a grade (Institutional course proficiency may not be earned for any course in which a student has already earned  a grade of A, B, C, D, F, I, AUDIT)

Students should contact Student Services, the Career & Academic Skills Center on the Fort Omaha Campus or the appropriate academic dean’s area for application procedures. Credit granted may apply toward the student's current listed major only; and might not transfer to other institutions.

A fee of $40 (non-refundable) for each proficiency examination, with the exception of INFO 1001, is payable to the campus cashier's office (located in the campus Student Services office or Career and Academic Skills Center (CASC) on the Fort Omaha Campus) prior to testing.

Below are proficiency examinations available, which are subject to change. Please consult the academic dean’s area for more information.
