Credit By Examination
Students may earn a maximum total of 36 semester hours credit through the following examinations. The college does not grant duplicate credit for subject areas covered by multiple examinations (e.g. AP credit for English and CLEP credit for English).
Advanced Placement (AP) Credit
Crossroads College participates in the Advanced Placement Program administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. Under this program, high school seniors take an advanced course in high school, followed by an exam that may qualify them for college credit. Students who enroll at Crossroads typically receive 3-6 semester hours of credit for each AP test completed with a score of 3 or higher. The most common test areas are Biology, English, Music Theory, and Psychology. Students interested in securing possible AP credit should consult with their high school guidance counselors.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit
The International Baccalaureate program is a comprehensive, rigorous two-year curriculum requiring written and oral examinations and formal essays in subjects at the college level. Students who enroll at Crossroads may receive academic credit in subject areas in which they earn a score of 5 or higher on IB examinations.
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Students may also earn college credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). The CLEP General Examinations measure college-level knowledge in six basic areas of the liberal arts, while the subject examinations measure knowledge in specific content areas. Students who enroll at Crossroads typically receive up to 3-6 semester hours of credit for each CLEP examination completed with a score of 50 or higher.
