Credit for Subject Examinations will be granted provided the student has not previously been enrolled in the course for which credit is to be earned. CLEP/DANTES credit shall not be granted for college level courses previously failed, for courses in which credit for higher level courses has already been earned, or for both the Subject Examination and its course equivalent.
Credit through CLEP/DANTES examinations will not be recorded on the student’s permanent record until the student has earned a minimum of 12 semester hours at the College. Notation will be made on the student’s permanent record indicating the course for which credit was awarded with the statement “Credit by Examination” followed by the number of semester hours granted.
The policy of granting credit through CLEP/DANTES examinations may differ from policies at other colleges and the student is cautioned to check with other colleges to obtain additional information.
