Accelerated Credit

Up to 45 semester hours of credit can be awarded by taking AICE, AP, IB, or CLEP tests and achieving appropriate scores.* To receive credit, official test scores must be sent directly to the Office of Admissions.

In addition, students with scores of 650 or higher on the critical reading portion of the SAT or 29 or higher on the English portion of the ACT will be granted three semester hours of credit equivalent to ENC 1101 (first college composition course). Students with scores of 680 or higher on the mathematics portion of the SAT or 30 or higher on the mathematics portion of the ACT will be granted three semester hours of credit equivalent to MAC 1105 (college algebra).

Students enrolled in college coursework prior to graduation from high school (dual enrollment) may be awarded college credit. An official college transcript will be required for the posting of credit. We will not post college credit from a high school transcript.

* Subject to change. Recent legislation calls for an annual review to determine the appropriate examination scores and courses for which credit is to be granted.
