Trident University International Introduces Challenge Exams


Available for select undergraduate level courses, successful completion of a challenge exam provides proficiency credit that can be applied towards a student’s degree plan.


Trident University International (Trident) has introduced Challenge Exams for undergraduate students in select courses, including Psychology, Sociology, and Biology. Trident is planning to add more challenge exams in the future.

Successful completion of an exam will provide a student with proficiency credit that they can apply towards an undergraduate degree. These examinations test students on similar outcomes and objectives taught in the respective Trident courses.

To be eligible, a student must currently be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program, they cannot have previously attempted the course, cannot have transfer credit for the course, and must have a Challenge Exam class in their degree plan or as an available general elective course.

To earn credit on a Challenge Exam, a student must earn at least 60% or better. Students who pass an exam will have proficiency credit added to their respective degree plan, and the course will be removed from their schedule.

Exams are available at no additional cost, and there is no penalty if a student does not pass. Students can attempt a Challenge Exam only once.
