Because you have knowledge gained through experience equivalent to one or more college courses, the CLEP and DSST examinations offer students currently enrolled at Marian University, or any non-Marian students who will be having their scores sent to another institution, the opportunity to earn credit for that knowledge.
Admissions counselors work with students in the admission process to identify and appropriately award credit for prior learning demonstrated through AP, CLEP, and/or DSST examinations taken prior to applying to Marian University. Once enrolled, students are encouraged to work with their Academic Advisor to identify college-level learning that could be demonstrated through CLEP and DSST examination.
Advanced Placement courses will be accepted with a required test score of three or better. For a complete listing of Advanced Placement program equivalences, click here.
Considerations for the award of credit include:
- The educational quality of the learning experience, validated through direct assessment via recognized examination processes;
- The comparability of the nature, content, and level of the learning experience to that offered by Marian University; and
- The appropriateness and applicability of the learning experience to the programs offered by Marian University, in light of the student’s educational goals.
