Accelerated credit is articulated based on the term in which the credit was earned.  Credit earned in a term prior to the current catalog year will be awarded based on the equivalency table in effect at that time.

Equivalency tables for prior catalogs are accessible through the following steps:  (1) select Archived Catalogs from the left navigation box, (2) select the appropriate catalog year (3) select Print the Archive Catalog from the left navigation box, (4) select Equivalency Tables in the Undergraduate Information box in the middle of the page, (4) select the Print Catalog button at the bottom of the page. 

Credit for exams that do not appear on the equivalency table will be awarded in accordance with state Credit-by-Exam Equivalency guidelines and evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Advanced Placement (AP) exams are taken after students complete the corresponding Advanced Placement course in high school. Advanced Placement courses are challenging, college-level courses that are designed to parallel typical lower-level undergraduate courses. Exams are developed by committees of college and secondary faculty, and are given to test groups of students in actual college courses to determine appropriate passing scores. More information about Advanced Placement, including descriptions of courses and sample examination questions, is available at http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/Controller.jpf

Up to 45 total credit-by-exam credits may be awarded for guaranteed transfer. Credits earned through Credit by Exam that exceed 45 semester credit hours may be transferred at the discretion of the receiving institution.
