UExcel Equivalencies at COSC

From Degree Forum Wiki

It can be confusing to try to figure out whether a particular UExcel exam will work for a given degree plan at COSC or not. Consult this table to help you decide whether a certain exam will be worth taking or not. Information has been transcribed from the PDF linked to on this Charter Oak page. If you happen to need Liberal Arts credit, confirm on that PDF whether or not the exam is worth Liberal Arts credit.

Please be aware that this cost does not include tech fees or testing center fees which are separate and can be significant. UExcels require a grade of "C" or better in order to transfer to COSC.

The key for understanding the general education requirements column can be found at the bottom of the table.
