College Level Examinations Program (CLEP)

Home > Academics > Academic 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 Program (CLEP).

CLEP 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 requirements.
