William Carey University awards college credit to students through CLEP examinations and Advanced Placement Testing. Requirements are listed below:
Credit obtained by any combination of CLEP, Advanced Placement examinations, and International Baccalaureate (IB) higher level course scores may not exceed thirty hours. Credit by CLEP may not be earned for a subject in which more advanced credit has been earned. Credit by CLEP may not be earned for a course if the prerequisite courses have not been taken. Decisions regarding IB credit are made on a case-by-case basis for each applicant by the appropriate academic department. A minimum score of 5 is required for consideration.
Humanities, college mathematics, natural science, social science, and history examinations are elective credit only. Students may, prior to or during their first term of enrollment (for part-time or summer students prior to having completed 15 hours), obtain degree credit for satisfactory performance (minimum score----scaled score of 500) on one or more of the exams named above, provided the student has not been enrolled in a comparable course for more than 30 calendar days. Six semester hours of credit may be obtained for each of the four examinations areas: humanities, mathematics, natural sciences, and social sciences/history.
CLEP Subject Examinations.
William Carey University grants credit for CLEP Subject Examinations in place of enrollment in equivalent courses which are applicable to the degree program in which the student is enrolled. The acceptable scaled score for each subject examination is determined by the appropriate academic department but must be a minimum of 50. Students may take subject examinations at any time during their college career, provided they have not been enrolled in the equivalent course for more than 30 calendar days. Credit may not be received for both the subject examination and its equivalent, either in another examination or in a course taken for credit.
