ICS Exams

The Academic Testing Center will administer examinations for credit for ICS 31, 45C, and 45 J during Summer quarter, 2021. Dates for the examinations are posted on our Current Test Dates page.

The examinations will test students’ mastery of the course material for each course. Each examination may be taken only once. After receiving a grade for the examination the student may accept or reject it. If the student accepts the examination’s result, the grade will be entered on the students’ record.

Students who received credit already for a course will not receive a grade for an examination in that course.

Please note the ICS examinations are extremely limited. Seats for all examinations will be given out on a first come, first served basis. 

Admission to the examination is a two-step process: first, register online and then pay the credit by examination fee. Do not pay the fee unless you have definitely registered for an examination.

A $5 fee for each examination by credit must be paid online at


NOTE: Students must email a copy of the receipt from the web store to testcenter@uci.edu in order to complete their exam registration.

Registration information available through the ICS Credit By Exam Information page.
