When will I get my complete official score?

What we call a ''soft score'' is given immediately upon completion of the exam. A soft score is the number of questions you got correct on the exam. However, this is not your official course score as other factors are calculated in your final course grade.

All courses have a participation score factored into your final course grade. Your participation score is the average of your best grade on each quiz from your first three attempts. Your participation score is worth 33% of your final grade.

300 courses have additional projects that are worth 33% of your grade. You can learn more about these projects from the ''Sylllabus'' tab for the course, or in the first lesson of the final chapter of the course.

  • If the course you are taking has additional projects, your final exam is worth 33% of your final course grade.
  • If the course you are taking does NOT have additional projects, your final exam is worth 67% of your final course grade.

How do I ask my college if they accept credits from Study.com?

Study.com is not an accredited institution. However, we have 200+ courses that have been recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) and/or the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS). More than 2,000 colleges and university accept ACE and/or NCCRS credit recommendations, and our courses can be easily transferred to those colleges once the proctored exam is successfully passed. We suggest that you contact your school's registrar or admissions office and ask them if they accept ACE or NCCRS recommended credits. If they say yes, you should also verify that the course you're interested in taking will work for your particular situation.

Both are credit recommendation bodies that Study.com has credit-recommended courses through, and many of our courses are credit-recommended by both institutions.
