Testing Programs (AP, CLEP, IB)

Milligan College recognizes that not all college-level learning occurs in a college classroom and awards credit earned by testing. The Testing Office evaluates and/or administers the following testing programs:

Milligan College students may submit scores on examinations taken through these programs to the Registrar for evaluation. College credit will be granted on the basis of an acceptable score earned through these testing programs as determined by the Academic Committee rather than by the testing company under the conditions below. See the tables below for information about AP and CLEP tests, acceptable scores, and credits awarded.

Guidelines

  1. At least one semester of work must be completed at Milligan College before credit earned by testing will be recorded on the transcript.

  2. No credit by exam will be allowed after a student has earned a cumulative total of 64 hours of college credit.

  3. A maximum of 32 semester hours can be earned by testing.

  4. A recording fee of $10 per credit hour will be charged.

  5. For transfer students who have previously received credit-by-exam at another institution, please click here.
