Credit for College Courses Taken During High School:

Erskine recognizes dual-enrollment credits and examination-based credits that meet the following guidelines:

Dual-Enrollment / College Courses

Courses taken during high school may be considered for credit at Erskine College upon receipt of an official transcript of all college courses taken, submitted directly from the college attended.

Examination-Based Credits

Credits earned through AP, IB, CLEP, or proficiency testing do not affect the student’s grade point average. Questions regarding examination-based credits should be referred to the College registrar.

Advanced Placement Program (AP)

If a student receives a score of four (4) or higher on Advanced Placement (AP) tests, college credit will be awarded.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

If a student receives a score of five (5) or higher on a higher-level examination of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, college credit will be awarded.

College Level Examination Program

The college may grant credits based on the results of the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Credit is awarded for subject examinations only; no credit is awarded for general examinations.

Credit by Proficiency

Proficiency examinations may be requested through department chairs. These tests may be prepared locally or obtained from the Educational Testing Service or other nationally recognized testing agencies. A fee may be charged by the administering department for a proficiency exam.
