The Center for Teaching and Learning coordinates the university’s credit by examination and placement test programs, including credit for Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), SAT Subject Tests, and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests.

Placement Tests

Before you can register for certain courses, you may be required to take a test to place you at the appropriate instructional level. Go to the course schedule and click on the course’s unique number to view prerequisites.

AP, IB, CLEP & SAT Subject Test Credit

Your academic advisor will review your scores during orientation. You must go online to petition for the credit to be posted to your academic record. Consult with an academic advisor prior to doing so, as credit can be applied differently depending on your major.
