Testing Out

The State of Michigan allows students to "test out" of courses in which they are able to demonstrate knowledge of the content expectations associated with the subject area. This can be accomplished by obtaining at least 77% on all assessments related to the course.
Testing out is offered twice per year - in August and in January. Interested students should file an application with the counseling office.  

Test out forms are available now in the counseling office until Dec. 13, 2016.  Meeting is on Dec. 14, 2016 at 8:15 am in the DLL(N200) to receive information and details of the test out. Test Out Form
