Challenge Exams

If you believe you already have the skills you would gain in a required Madison College class, you can request a challenge exam. If you pass, you'll get the credit for that class on your MATC transcript. Exams are proctored at the Truax campus in the business lab (Room D3610). 

Fees will be charged for challenge exams beginning July 1, 2017. Please see the challenge exam page for more information.

Challenge exams at Truax can be taken Monday through Friday in the Business Lab (room D3610). Exam hours vary depending on the coordinators' schedule, so please request dates and times when filling out the request from. (If you prefer a quieter environment when taking exams, it would be best to request them in the early mornings or later afternoons.) If you require an evening appointment, you will need to find a proctor to administer the exam for you, and please choose the online option when filling out the challenge exam request form.
