AP, CLEP, AND IB Transfer Credits
Dunwoody awards transfer credits to students who have completed and passed the official exams for Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and International Baccalaureate (IB).
Specific course credit is awarded when exam content is comparative in nature and material to a Dunwoody course. Credit amounts and equivalences are based off national guidelines and the current Dunwoody catalog and are subject to change. In accordance with Dunwoody’s transfer policy, credit is only awarded when applicable to the student’s Academic Plan. General elective credit will be granted when there are no other places to apply credit on a student’s academic plan (arts & sciences courses only).
