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.
