Advanced Standing Test Programs

Depending upon the program of study, entering students may be awarded advanced standing to a maximum of thirty credit hours on the basis of advanced placement examinations. College credit can be earned through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP) through testing with the College Board or the International Baccalaureate (IB). Students must attain a minimum of 3 or better on the AP and 4 or better on the IB. Six (6) credit hours per subject area may be awarded for the American Council on Education based on recommended passing scores attained on the CLEP as administered by ETS. Other recognized college-credit granting programs may also provide a student advanced standing at Husson. Students are encouraged to present earned credit for evaluation when applying for admission.
