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, DSST, IB, and/or 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 credit by examination cannot exceed 30 credit hours.
