Advanced Standing

AP | CLEP | DANTES | IB


WAIVER OF REQUIREMENTS OR CREDIT THROUGH ADVANCED STANDING BY EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING 

Students who feel that previous educational studies, training programs, or work experience may entitle them to an adjustment in the coursework required in a particular curriculum should contact the Admissions Office to obtain a copy of the College form to request evaluation for Advanced Standing by Experiential Learning. The advanced placement function of the college is the administrative placement of a student beyond the basic or first courses(s) in a curriculum, allowing waiver of credit or college credit for subject matter and/or other appropriate training or experience.

Advanced standing may be considered upon the submission of documentation on: (1) College Level Examination Programs (CLEP), (2) Advanced Placement Program (AP), (3) Subject Standardized Tests (SST) through DANTES/USAFI, (4) transfer credits from other regionally accredited post-secondary institutions, (5) equated occupational experience, (6) assessment of coursework with external agencies, (7) institutional credit by exam, (8) assessment of coursework with vocational technical schools, (9) military and non-traditional learning experiences, (10) waiver of physical education requirements for veterans, and (11) waiver of foreign language requirements.

In transferring to a senior institution, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the institution concerning the acceptability of credit awarded by advanced placement.
