Examinations Program (CLEP)
Home > Academics
Policies > CLEP
Students may seek college credit by either
satisfactorily completing the Advanced Placement Examination
or the College Level Examinations Program (CLEP) of the College
Entrance Examination Board for the subject area in which credit
is sought, and/or by making satisfactory scores on tests administered
by the individual discipline offering the course. Letter grades
are not given in any course for which credit is granted by
examination. General examinations of CLEP, USAFI, etc., are
not acceptable for credit. Students may receive credit for
a maximum of 15 hours through the College Level Examination
credits may be used to satisfy degree requirements, but do
not apply to the 25-percent-credit-hour residency requirement.
In addition, these credits may be used to meet prerequisites
for advanced courses.
Students who have failed a class are
not eligible to take a CLEP exam for that same course.
A student may not receive credit for a CLEP exam for a course
in which a grade has already been earned at
Dallas Baptist University.
Graduating seniors are not allowed
to take CLEP exams during their final (graduating) semester.
Credit by examination secured by students
transferring to Dallas Baptist University will be accepted
only if the examinations and resulting scores meet specified
Credit by Examination
