Credit By Examination

College of Central Florida welcomes a variety of students of all ages to our campus. Many students bring a depth of knowledge to specific subjects. We recognize and honor such knowledge by awarding credit by examinations. Section 1007.27 (2), Florida Statutes, requires the Articulation Coordinating Committee, ACC, to establish passing scores and course and credit equivalents for such exams. Public community colleges and universities in Florida are requested to follow the ACC’s recommendation concerning their examination policies. Credit awarded by exam may not duplicate other credit. Institutions may not award credit for scores below those listed by the ACC. CF students may satisfy up to 45 semester hours of course credit through any combination of credit by examination (e.g., CLEP, AP, IB, Dantes and/or Excelsior College). Hours toward graduation are recorded as “credit by examination” with no grades or quality points given. These credits do not affect a student’s grade point average. Score minimums, credit hours awarded and course equivalencies awarded are subject to change for any examination without prior notice.
