College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Test Policy

Students who take and pass CLEP testing for subjects in which Holy Apostles College & Seminary offers undergraduate courses may transfer 3-credits per exam (6 credits for Spanish) for a maximum of 15 credits towards either the Associate of Arts degree or the Bachelor of Arts degree programs of study.  CLEP credits count towards the maximum number of transferable credits allowed.  

If the number of CLEP credits combined with the credits transferred from other programs exceeds the maximum number of transferable credits allowed, Holy Apostles College & Seminary may instead waive the requirement for the student to take a course in the CLEP subject area and allow the student to replace it with a different course within the program.  All CLEP transfer credits are at the discretion and approval of the Academic Dean.  

The following CLEP exams and scores will be accepted for transferable credit at Holy Apostles College & Seminary.
