Challenging a Course Challenging a Course

Course Challenging is an alternative approach to traditional classes for earning credit in a course, and is available if you are enrolled through ENMU-Portales. A maximum of 21 credits may be earned through course challenging.

If you wish to challenge a course listed in the catalog, complete the following steps.

  1. Consult with the instructor of the course you wish to challenge, and the chair of the department.

    If you have already enrolled in the course or if you've attended more than four weeks of the course, you are not eligible to challenge the course. Normally, you will not be allowed to challenge a course if you've already taken and passed a higher-level course.

  2. Produce any materials required by the instructor to demonstrate your preparation in the area you're challenging, or evidence of prior coursework.

    As each course may be different based on prerequisites and instructor, this may vary.

  3. Discuss any requirements with the instructor and department chair.

    Course challenges may take the form of exams, projects, writing assignments or several different measures of course competency. You'll need to have this discussion before you move forward with the course challenge.

  4. Secure a memo from the instructor and chair endorsing and detailing the course challenge details, and take the memo to the presiding dean for an authorization signature.

  5. Take the signed memo to the Cashier in the Administration Building (AD) Foyer, pay the $15 per credit hour challenge fee and return the receipt and the memo to the instructor administering the challenge.

    Be sure to make a copy of the form for your records.

The challenge exam will then be scheduled at a time convenient both to you and the instructor. If you complete the challenge successfully (with a grade of C or higher), the instructor will submit a Change of Grade Form to the Registrar. This form will reflect a "CRE" grade awarded for the challenged course. If you did not earn at least a C, there will be no Change of Grade Form issued and no entry on your transcript. You can choose to petition to challenge the course a second time, however you will have to pay the course challenge fee again, and the instructor will prepare an alternate test.
