Any student accepted by Fisher College may be awarded credits toward
his or her degree or certificate by demonstrating his or her knowledge
and competency through the nationally recognized College Level
Examination Program (CLEP) or Advanced Placement (AP) examinations.
Credit will not be awarded if equivalent coursework has been completed
either prior to, or later than the examination. It is the student's
responsibility to arrange to take the examination at any of the national
testing centers and to provide Fisher College official documentation of
their scores. Credit by examination will be awarded based on the
recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE). Please
note that credits awarded through examination are categorized as
"transfer" and are, therefore, subject to transfer credit policies
outlined in this catalog. For more information regarding minimum scores
required and potential amount of credits to be awarded, please contact
the Office of the Registrar.
The College also recognizes that there are many different
credit-by-examination programs available throughout the country. Credit
may be awarded for other programs if the exam is recognized by the
American Council on Education, and the Council has published
recommendations for the awarding of credit. The College Registrar and
Campus Registrars maintain a list of available examinations and their
Fisher College equivalencies.
