* AACC will allow a maximum of 15 proficiency credits to be used to meet program graduation requirements. The 15 credit limit is a limit imposed by COMAR and applies to the number of credit by exams a student can use toward graduation. It only affects graduation requirements and does not affect the ability for the students to use those courses toward prerequisites for other courses.
Thus, students could potentially earn 16 proficiency credits for our Networking 1, 2, 3, and 4 courses. If they came to AACC and sought completion of a degree that required these 4 networking courses, he/she would not have to repeat the Networking 4 course; however, the college will only count 15 of those credits toward graduation credits. If an additional credit was needed to meet program graduation credit requirements, the student would have to pick it up somewhere else at the college.
Except for requesting proficiency credit for ALL networking courses (CTS 130, 131, 230, and 233), students should request proficiency credit for AACC courses totaling no more than 15 credits.
