Proficiency and Advanced Placement

Students may increase their opportunities to pursue advanced work or may earn credits toward graduation through proficiency and advanced placement. Such credit is substituted for specified courses and is usually gained through appropriate scores on the following examinations administered by the College Board: SAT Subject Tests in a modern foreign language; the Advanced Placement Test (given to high school students in advanced programs); and the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests, both the Subject-Level and General-Level Tests. All proficiency and advanced placement credit must be approved by the academic department involved. Further information is available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or the appropriate academic department.
