Students who believe they have acquired a competency level or knowledge from previous education and work experience for a particular course may take a STEP Test. The Testing Center schedules and administers all STEP Tests. STEP Test Request Forms and lists of available test are located at the front office or business office of the Covington, Boone and Edgewood campuses. Each STEP Form request must be signed by an advisor or admissions representative. Not all classes offer STEP Tests, please check course titles and numbers for accuracy when scheduling. Students who successfully demonstrate competence by scoring at least 70 percent on the STEP exam receive a P for passing. The credit will not affect the students grade point average but will count toward program completion. A student may take a STEP exam only once for a particular course before enrolling in that course. A student may STEP-test out of a total of nine semester hours. STEP testing takes place at the Boone Campus.
