  2. Credit hours in parentheses. FGCU will award university credit in accordance with state guidelines for exam scores in subject areas not on this list. Such exam scores may also earn credit for specific FGCU courses. These will be evaluated on a case by case basis. AP, IB, CLEP & AICE (added) information regarding courses/areas for which FGCU credit may be assigned is subject to change. Students should consult their academic advisors for up-to-date information.
