Departmental Advanced Standing Examinations

Departmental Advanced Standing Examinations

Advanced Standing Credit  

Advanced standing credit can be earned at RSU by evaluating a student’s previous learning experiences through testing. Most departments offer some courses by examination. Students should consult with the Department Head offering the course of interest as to whether it can be taken by examination. Students must be currently enrolled and complete 12 credit hours in residency at Rogers State University prior to recording the advanced standing credit on the permanent records. Advanced standing cannot be taken for a course previously failed.

The charge for administering an institutional advanced standing examination is $12.00 per semester credit hour, which must be paid prior to taking the examination. Fee is subject to change.

Advanced Standing Credit for Practical Nurse and Paramedic Education

Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) and nationally licensed paramedics (NREMTP) are eligible to receive college credit. The number of credit hours granted is determined by the nursing faculty and emergency medical services faculty respectively. Qualified candidates successfully completing specified tests may earn credit. Students must complete 12 credit hours in residency at Rogers State University prior to recording the advanced standing credit on the permanent record. The faculty determine the specific criteria for awarding credit for prior educational experiences. The faculty also determine the admission and progression policies and clinical practice experiences.

Advanced Placement Program

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) examination is available to students while enrolled in high school. Advanced Standing Credit may be awarded if a student scores at a level of “3” or higher. The number of credits awarded is based on the American Council on Education Guidelines. Advanced Standing Credit may be awarded only for courses that are taught at Rogers State University. The grade of "P" will be placed on a student’s transcript after the completion of 12 credit hours at RSU. A grade of “P” is GPA neutral.
