AP, IB, and CLEP Credit
Students may earn credit through three competency exams recognized by the university: Advanced Placement (AP) tests, International Baccalaureate (IB) and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). A maximum of 30 units may be awarded for AP, IB and CLEP combined.
- Advanced Placement: Students may be granted 3 semester units of credit for subjects in which they have submitted scores of three or higher on advanced placement tests. Students must have official transcripts from CollegeBoard sent to the Registrar's Office.
- College Level Examination Program: Credit awarded for examinations is equal to that of the Fresno Pacific University course to which it corresponds. Credit is not awarded for examinations when more advanced coursework in the subject area has been completed. The university uses the ACE recommended minimum score to award credit.
- International Baccalaureate: Students may be granted credit through the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) for advanced study in high school. Credit is awarded when score of five or greater is earned in higher level IB subject exams. Scores will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
