Awarding Credit

As an undergraduate, you can only be awarded credit if you take the ACT/SAT examination before your first registration at ENMU-Portales. Your credit will be awarded within your first semester at ENMU.

If you are a transfer student, you must submit your ACT/SAT scores when you apply to be considered for this credit.

Any credit earned through CLEP, AP and ACT/SAT must be mutually exclusive. For example, a student cannot earn three hours of English credit through ACT/SAT and another three hours of credit for English through CLEP or AP. The total number of credits accepted from any combination of CLEP general and ACT/SAT cannot exceed 30 credit hours.
