Credits Accepted

AP Credit


Dual Credit


Credit for Life Experiences


The majority of the universities in the US incentivize students by helping them score university credit through certain courses offered in high school. There are many such programs that are at disposal for the students. Some of the famous ones include AP Credit, CLEP (Credit for Life Experiences), and Dual Enrollment (also known as Dual Credit). However, there is no common policy and instead, colleges follow their own, separate policy regarding these credits. There are multiple perks for the usage of these courses such as higher GPA, shorter time to finish a degree, and increased chances of completing a degree. To pursue AP and CLEP credits, students are instructed to visit collegeboard.org and request to submit the scores to the university of their choice.
