How Credits Work
Prescott College accepts college-level credit from the following:
- regionally accredited US colleges or universities for 100 level and higher courses, with a grade equivalent of C or higher. In some cases, college-level credit from US colleges and universities that are not regionally accredited may still be transferable via Prescott College’s Conversion Portfolio Policy.
- full range of College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests, which measure mastery of college-level introductory course content in a wide range of disciplines.
- US military services training tests via the American Council on Education (ACE) endorsement transcripts, AART (Army ACE Registry Transcript), SMART (Sailors/Marines ACE Registry Transcript), and Air University.
- tests administered to military personnel by DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support).
Accepted credits: credits awarded by regionally accredited institutions for college-level courses (100 level or higher) that received a grade equivalent of “C-” (1.7). Transfer classes taken for a pass/fail, credit/no credit, or satisfactory/unsatisfactory grade, and where “P”, “S”, or “CR” equals “C-” or better, may also be accepted for credit. In some cases, college-level credit from U.S. colleges and universities that are not regionally accredited may be transferable via the College’s Conversion Portfolio process, and would apply for the Prior Learning Assessment once enrolled at Prescott College.
Prescott College recognizes the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) and other state-based transfer frameworks such as California’s Intersegmental General Education Transfer Agreement. Completion of this type of curricula satisfies the lower-classmen core curriculum and general education course requirements. All credits from courses with a grade of “C-” or higher from a completed course will be accepted.
Prescott College awards 4 undergraduate college credits for each AP test score of 4 or 5, and for each IB “higher level” score of 5, 6, or 7, up to a maximum of 20 credits (5 tests). Credit is awarded on a course-by-course basis. AP scores must be sent directly from the College Board/Advanced Placement to the Office of the Registrar. AP and IB credits do not count toward the College’s residency requirements, and are not awarded based on another institution’s prior evaluation.
Prescott College accepts a full range of College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests, which measure mastery of college-level introductory course content in a wide range of disciplines. To receive credit, an official transcript must be sent by the CLEP Transcript Service. Prescott College uses the American Council on Education’s (ACE) recommendations to determine transfer credit for CLEP exams. The College will not accept any transcript or score report submitted by the applicant, nor will credit be awarded based on another institution’s prior evaluation.
We know that learning happens outside the classroom, too, so we provide a process for you to document your life experience for the purpose of awarding additional credit. Ask your admissions counselor about how this works!
