The university participates in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), which is administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. Credit also is granted through the Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Support (DANTES), a program made available by the Education Testing Service (ETS).
Credit granted by examination is applicable to a St. 4166am金沙登录 degree program but may not necessarily be transferable to another institution. Examination credit counts in neither the residence hours nor honors calculations. It is necessary to make arrangements to complete all CLEP, DSST, PEP and challenge exams prior to certification for graduation. All examination credit appears on the transcript as CR and does not affect the GPA in any way.
The university also offers placement exams, which a student might take to be placed in an appropriate course, rather than taking a course in which they have already mastered the necessary skills. 例如, a student who feels that they have enough knowledge to take a higher level of a modern language rather than starting in the introductory course can take the modern language placement exam to determine the appropriate course to take.
