DALLAS BAPTIST UNIVERSITY
CREDIT BY EXAMINATION PROGRAM
The Dallas Baptist
University Credit by Examination Program is a concept for personal enrichment,
academic acceleration, and tuition aid. Dallas Baptist University recognizes
that many students, independent of the college environment, have achieved
the objectives and goals of certain college courses. Therefore, students
may seek to establish credit hours by participating in the Credit by Examination
Program as stipulated in this document. The examinations that comprise
the basis of the DBU program are:
- The College Board Achievement Tests
- The College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations
- The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) Subject Examinations
- Dallas Baptist University Departmental Course Examinations
The following policies,
procedures, and minimum score requirements are applicable through the
spring semester of 1999; however, the University reserves the right to
Credit is granted for examinations as specified in this document. Grades
are not given for credit earned by examination, nor is this credit calculated
in the DBU grade point average. These credits may be used to satisfy degree
requirements, but do not apply to the thirty-two hour residency requirement.
In addition, these credits may be used to meet prerequisites for advanced
courses. Unsuccessful attempts to earn credit by examination will not
be recorded. Credit by examination secured elsewhere by students transferring
to DBU will be accepted only if the examinations and resulting scores
meet the requirements stated in this document.
- List DBU as the score recipient of the College Board examinations.
Use code # 6159. Verify that any credit received is based on accurate test data and
agrees with the information in this document. Notify the Office of the Registrar of qualifying scores if an Evaluation
of Credit by Examination from DBU has not been received by one month
after one's tendered admission to the University or two months after
a test date. Provide the Office of the Registrar supplementary test reports if
DBU was not designated as the original score recipient. Take an examination no later than June if the fall class schedule
is contingent upon the results.
- Change the class schedule if credit is granted in a course for which
a student has already registered.
