* Credits are what Bacone College will allow towards a major or general education requirement. If a student CLEPs out of any course where there are no credits specifically reflected above, the student will receive the ACE recommended number of credit hours to apply to elective hours - - the credits will not fulfill general education requirements.

College credit may also be earned through distance learning courses offered through approved colleges and universities. The Division Chair, the Registrar, and the Office of Academic Affairs must approve for transfer of credit from distance learning courses offered by other institutions.

Students may obtain up to 21 credit hours of general education advanced standing credits via transfer credits, CLEP testing and AP exams.
