2 MILITARY ETSU POLICY East Tennessee State University awards credit for educational programs in the Armed Services of the United States as recommended by the Commission on Educational Credit of the American Council on Education and published in their Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Forces. The credit is awarded for formal military course completion, not for skill level attainment or occupational experience. Only first bachelor degree-seeking veterans are eligible. Military credit does not satisfy baccalaureate proficiency requirements. U.S. Army, Navy, and Marine veterans should submit official ACE Registry transcripts (ARTS/SMARTS) to the ETSU Office of Admissions. U.S. Air Force veterans should present official Community College of the Air Force transcripts. Coast Guard veterans should submit official Coast Guard Institute Education transcripts. The DD 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty, DD 295, Application for the Evaluation of Learning Experiences during Military Service, or other official documentation may also be submitted.

3 DANTES ETSU POLICY The DANTES Program is a testing service conducted by Educational Testing Service (ETS). Originally designed for military personnel, the program is now available to civilians. The DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSSTs) include approximately 50 tests in a wide range of introductory college-level academic, vocational/technical, and business subjects. ETSU awards credit for the following 9 DSSTs. ETSU is not a DANTES test center.

9 Departmental Course Challenge Exams Comprehensive departmental course challenge exams are available in most undergraduate courses. Students enrolled in ETSU who believe they have sufficient mastery of subject matter in specific ETSU courses may request to attempt a comprehensive examination through the chair of the department offering the course. Grades of A, B, C, D, or F or grades of P for passed hours and F for failed hours may be assigned for examination performance as determined by the appropriate academic department. A fee of $15.00 per credit hour sought will be charged. The administration of the examination is at the discretion of the academic department. Page 9

10 EXCELSIOR COLLEGE EXAMINATIONS ETSU POLICY The Excelsior College Examination are a series of college-level examinations designed to mea sure subject matter attained primarily outside typical classrooms in order to provide a basis for awarding college credit. ETSU awards credit for successful completion exam as detailed below: SUBJECT MINIMUM SCORE ETSU COURSE(S) SEM HRS CREDIT Gerontology, Foundations of 4 PUBH 407 Nursing At this time Excelsior College exams will transfer into ETSU as Nursing elective credit. Page 10

11 National League for Nursing (NLN) Mobility Profile II Testing The ETSU College of Nursing accepts credit earned through NLN Mobility Profile II testing. Registered nurses may receive credit for Nursing coursework completed at a diploma program or a non-nln-accredited associate program. This credit may be applied toward the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing (B.S.N.). Additional information is available from the Office of Student Services, College of Nursing. Page 11

12 University Credit for Experiential Learning (Bachelor of General Studies [B.G.S.], Bachelor of Professional Studies [B.S.P.S.], or Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies [B.S.I.S.]) East Tennessee State University reviews experiential learning for possible credit for B.G.S., B.S.P.S., and B.S.I.S. students. Experiential learning is typically learning that has taken place outside of traditional college settings, but does not include credit based upon advanced placement or other examinations (i.e., CLEP) or training provided by non-collegiate institutions such as the Armed forces and service schools (the American Council on Education National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs reviews such credits). Students work with their academic advisor to prepare a detailed and documented portfolio of experiential learning for possible credit. In the portfolio, students must request specific ETSU credit, identifying an existing ETSU course that is a good match with their experience/training/knowledge. Supporting materials in the portfolio that may help document the learning could include samples of creative works, specific licensures held, continuing education unit certificates awarded at the completion of workshops and training courses, and certificates of completion for applicable courses completed through noncollegiate-sponsored instruction or training. Students must file the Application for Academic Credit Earned through Experiential Learning in addition to the portfolio. The appropriate ETSU academic department reviews the completed experiential learning application and portfolio to determine course equivalency. Departments may request additional materials, an interview, a departmental challenge exam, and/or other methods to assess competencies for the applicable ETSU course. Credits earned through experiential learning are identified on the student's transcript and receive a grade of "P" for "passed hours." No more than 0 hours of credit may be earned through the portfolio. Students must be enrolled in at least one hour of ETSU coursework to apply for experiential learning credit. Credit earned through experiential learning typically cannot be transferred or applied to majors other than those identified. Additional information is available from the Office of Admissions or the School of Continuing Studies and Academic Outreach. Page

13 Credit from Non-Regionally Accredited Collegiate Institutions ETSU will review for possible credit courses earned through nonregionally accredited collegiate institutions. If a student wishes ETSU to consider acceptance of academic credit completed through institutions not accredited by regional accrediting associations, a petition that such credit be reviewed must be filed. This petition, the Application for Academic Credit Earned at Non-Regionally Accredited Collegiate Institutions, is available from the Office of Admissions. The student must obtain this petition form and provide it to the appropriate academic department. Credit will be recorded on a student s record only after the appropriate academic department and dean have reviewed the course and determined it to be equivalent in content to an ETSU course and approval is issued by the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
