Strayer students can prove their knowledge through standardized tests in dozens of different subject areas. Think of it as taking the final exam without taking the course. Some of these tests are offered nationally and others are unique to Strayer courses. All are available at our campus libraries and many are offered online. The testing fees for Strayer assessments are very low.

You'll build your portfolio online with help from an Academic Advisor to see how much credit you can earn.
