Curriculum, Honors, and Academic Regulations Individually-Designed Majors and Minors For those students whose career or academic goals are not best served by a traditional major or minor offered at the University of Jamestown, it is possible to design a major or minor that spans several academic disciplines. Information on individually-designed major or minor application procedures may be obtained from the Faculty Senate President. Pre-Professional and Certification Programs Pre-professional or certification programs are available in addiction counseling, chiropractic, coaching credentials, dentistry, engineering, law, medicine, occupational therapy, optometry, osteopathy, pharmacy, physical therapy, podiatry, theology, and veterinary medicine. Registration Each student must enroll in all courses for which credit or audit recognition is desired and must assume the responsibility for being properly registered. Cancellation of registration after July 1 will result in a $50 cancellation fee for non-residence hall students (off campus). No registration is permitted after the first ten calendar days of a semester without the permission of the Provost. Summer Sessions The University of Jamestown has a summer school program that includes classroom courses, directed and independent studies, and online courses. Information is available from the registrar. Credit by Examination Programs for credit by examination include the following: Advanced Placement Tests of College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB): 34

These tests are accepted to satisfy the University of Jamestown’s equivalent course requirements. A grade of three (3) or higher is required for gaining credit on the basis of these examinations. Course equivelency is determined by the registrar in collaboration with the appropriate academic department chair. Students who have completed the English Literature and Composition AP test with a grade of three (3) or higher will be placed in English 102 on the basis of the test. Challenge Program: The Challenge Program is designed to free the well-prepared student from taking courses in which he or she has already gained competence. The Provost and department chair shall determine the availability of challenge examinations for courses. A student wishing to challenge a course shall make arrangements through, and seek advice of, the relevant department. Credit is granted for courses successfully challenged at C- level or better. A grade of P is assigned that does not affect the student’s grade point average. A non-refundable fee will be assessed for each challenge (see Costs: Miscellaneous Fees). A student may not challenge a course that he or she has already taken for credit, nor may the same course be challenged more than once. Challenge application forms are available in the Registrar’s Office. CLEP (College Level Examination Program): Students may earn credit by CLEP examination at the University of Jamestown. General examinations and subject examinations are administered on campus by appointment. Inquiries should be directed to the Career Center in Raugust Library. Students may not repeat by CLEP exam a course previously taken unless this is specifically approved by the department chair in that discipline.
