Institutional Course Proficiency

Students wishing to demonstrate course proficiency may challenge selected credit courses by taking a proficiency examination. Students must be in good standing, currently enrolled at MCC, not be enrolled in the course being challenged and cannot have completed the course previously with a grade. A fee for each proficiency examination is payable at any MCC location prior to testing. Students should contact Student Services or Career and Academic Skills Center  on the Fort Omaha Campus for information and application procedures. Credit granted may apply toward the student's current listed major only. Credit granted might not transfer to other institutions.

A fee of $40 (non-refundable) for each proficiency examination 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.
