Challenge for Credit
Credits may be awarded for prior education and experiential learning when students successfully pass appropriate examinations/tests of the department.

Credit for courses taken at other educational institutions may be granted towards Red River College courses and programs. A formal application with proper documentation is required to transfer credits.
