Credit by Examination
Credit by examination may be obtained at UW-Whitewater through Departmental Examination, the College level Examination Program (CLEP), the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB), and Advance Placement (AP) examinations. A student may receive a maximum of 60 credits on the basis of examinations.
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national program of credit-by-examination that offers the opportunity to be recognized for college-level accomplishments. For more information: http://www.collegeboard.com/clep
Departmental exams are tests developed by the particular departments and are usually not transferable to any other university. Such tests may already be prepared and kept at the Testing Office or may have to be developed by the individual department, as necessary. The testing time for departmental exams ranges from one to three hours. Contact the Testing Office or the particular department for more information.
CEEB and IB Examinations
CEEB Advanced Placement Exams as well as the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program Exams serve students who wish to pursue college-level studies while still in secondary school. Contact your high school counselor to determine if your high school participates in these programs. For information about the CEEB and IB examinations for which UW - Whitewater grants credits, contact the Testing Office.
Advanced Placement Examinations
The Advanced Placement (AP) program is set up to give high school students the opportunity to take college level courses in the high school setting. Contact your high school for course offerings and the Testing Center for information on the acceptance of AP credit at UW-Whitewater.
