CLEP Credit Guide
Dordt uses the American Council on Education’s (ACE) recommendations for the minimum scores to receive college credit for CLEP examinations. The amount of credit that is granted for each CLEP exam is determined by the equivalent courses at Dordt.
Many times, these correspond to the ACE recommendations, but in some cases, this may vary from the ACE recommendations. A maximum of 30 credits of credit by examination through CLEP, AP, or other college-level examinations will be accepted toward a degree at Dordt University.
As with any transfer credit contact the Registrar’s Office prior to taking any courses or test for formal approval.
