Exams

Park University will accept a maximum of 6 hours toward a certificate, 30 hours towards an associates degree, and 60 hours toward a bachelors degree. This credit may come from any combination of general or subject exams from CLEP, DSST, Excelsior College Exams, or from courses offered by non-accredited entities (e.g., Straighterline, Sophia, etc.), providing that credit is recommended by ACE. To receive credit, a student must submit an official transcript or score report (for exams) to Park University Registrar’s Office.

  • Credit may only be used once to fulfill a given requirement or elective.
  • Credits will be based upon the correlation available at the time the transcript is submitted. A re-evaluation of credit will not be performed at a later date.
  • No credit is awarded for separate subtest scores.

See the Academic Success Center or your Campus Center Director for detailed information concerning CLEP or DSST examinations. Exam correlations can be found on the Registrar’s Office Exams page. To receive credit, a student must submit an official transcript to Park University Registrar’s Office.
