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.

UExcel Examinations; Excelsior College Examinations (formerly known as Regents College Exams or the Proficiency Examination Program), are developed by Excelsior College using national committees of faculty consultants and national studies to assess how well the tests measure the performance of students in actual college courses. UExcel (Excelsior College) Examinations are approved by the American Council on Education and Excelsior College itself is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSACS). More detailed information about Excelsior College Examinations can be found on-line at

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.
