A student may receive a total of 30 semester hours of credit by CLEP, AP, IB, and Advanced Standing Exam. A maximum of 24 semester hours may be awarded for International Baccalaureate (IB) courses.
All examination credit counts as credit earned (with a grade of "K") toward graduation in terms of hours earned and course credit earned, but these hours are not applied toward institutional graduation residency requirements and they are not calculated in the graduation grade point average (gpa).
