If you plan on completing some of your required coursework via Credit by Examination (EM credit), the College will check to see if your EM credit for required coursework has posted to your record by the Friday of the 10th Week of your graduating semester. You are required to complete the tests for EM credit early in the semester in order to avoid any issues with credit posting.
If your EM credit has not posted by the Friday of the 10th Week of the semester, at that point you will be removed from the Graduation Candidate List for that semester. You will NOT be permitted to participate in the Commencement Ceremony until your EM credit posts. If you earn EM credit after this deadline, notify the departmental advisor as soon as possible and you will be re-added to the Graduation Candidate List and permitted to participate in Commencement. If your EM credit never posts, you will NOT be permitted to participate in the Commencement Ceremony for this semester and will need to submit another graduation application to your advisor with your new semester of graduation.Please note that, according to the policy from the Office of Testing, EM tests cannot be repeated. You can find more information about earning EM credit by going to the University Registrar’s Testing Center.
After you have completed any tests for EM credit, you can monitor your record by running an Advising Report via the Student Center on Buckeye Link. Once the credit has been posted to your Ohio State record, it will appear on this report.
