Kirkwood Community College Credit Catalog 2011-2012

Credit by Examination

Students may earn credit hours through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or through a variety of department-approved subject matter examinations or Advanced Placement tests. These examinations enable students to earn college credit for their knowledge in various subject areas by allowing them to test out of individual courses. Credits awarded through the examination process will count toward the number of credit hours needed for the program degree, diploma or certificate. The dean of the respective department will have final approval of credits awarded by examination.

For further information about these exams, check with the dean of students office.
