Additional information regarding exams for credit

A maximum of 60 semester hours may be granted through AP, CLEP, or any American Council on Education (ACE) accredited course or exam. Credit may be granted for AP and CLEP examinations taken after students have matriculated with any college or university, provided they have not taken the corresponding course at the college level.

Credit granted through Advanced Placement (AP), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), or the General Certificate Examination (GCE) "A" level examinations and credit transferred from CHEA recognized accredited institutions appear on student transcripts as accepted credit regardless of whether the student graduated from ORU.
