Advanced Placement (AP)
Huntingdon College participates in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board. Students who have taken any Advanced Placement exams should have the test results sent directly from AP to the Registrar’s Office in order to receive credit. Credit is awarded at the discretion of Huntingdon College and each department, and students should not assume that credit will be awarded automatically. Three to eight (3 – 8) semester hours of credit may be granted for each AP Examination passed with a score of three or higher in courses accepted by Huntingdon College. The number of hours granted is determined by each departmental area. A $25 per credit hour recording fee is assessed.

Cambridge International Examination (CIE/AICE)
Huntingdon College may award credit for students who participate in the Cambridge International Examination (CIE) program of Cambridge University. Students who have taken college-level courses and who would like to apply for academic credit at Huntingdon should take the appropriate Cambridge International Examination and have the official score report sent to the Office of the Registrar. The College reviews and evaluates each CIE examination and score on an individual basis in the context of a student’s proposed area of study. Credit is awarded at the discretion of the College, and students should not assume that credit will be awarded automatically. The number of hours granted, as well as course equivalency, is determined by the corresponding academic program. A $25.00 recording fee per awarded credit hour is assessed.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Huntingdon College awards up to thirty semester hours of credit for satisfactory performance (50th percentile or higher) on the tests of the College Level Examination Program provided that the examination area is comparable to a course offered for credit at Huntingdon College. Although students who wish to receive credit granted on this basis are encouraged to take Subject Examinations, the thirty hours permitted may be taken in Subject Examinations, General Examinations or both. However, no credit will be granted on the basis of General Examinations taken after the student has entered college. Students wishing to receive credit based on CLEP scores should request the College Entrance Examination Board to send the official score report directly to the Registrar of Huntingdon College. A $25.00 per credit hour recording fee is assessed for all accepted CLEP scores. Subject or General Examinations not listed below may be considered for credit upon written request.

Transfer Credit Policy
Transfer credit is granted for any course taken at a regionally accredited college or university in which the student has earned a grade of “D” or better or in the case of a course taken on a “Pass/Fail” basis, a grade of “P”, provided that the course is deemed comparable to a course offered for academic credit at Huntingdon College or is of such a nature that it would carry academic credit if it were offered by the College. Courses that do not have an equivalent at Huntingdon College and are of such a nature that they would carry academic credit if offered by the College will receive an appropriate prefix and be numbered “000.” In some cases, following the appropriate prefix, the course level will be represented by the first digit with “xx” to follow (e.g. 1xx, 2xx, 3xx, 4xx). In either case, such courses granted as elective transfer credit will count toward the total number of academic credits required for the degree but are not necessarily applicable toward the core curriculum, major, or minor requirements. A grade of “C“ or higher is required for courses fulfilling a major or minor requirement.
Transfer credit will not be granted for courses which belong in one or more of the following categories: (a) courses in professional, vocational, or sectarian religious study, or (b) courses below the level of introductory courses at Huntingdon College. The College does not grant credit for attendance in service schools or training programs in the Armed Forces unless it can be demonstrated that such attendance is the equivalent of a course or courses offered at Huntingdon College. Academic courses taken while on military service at accredited colleges, universities, or language institutes may be transferred in the normal manner. Based on a review of an official transcript, credit may be awarded for general military training. Academic credit will not be granted for work done while a student was placed on academic suspension or the equivalent at a previous institution.
Evaluations of credits earned from other institutions are made after a student has been selected for admission and has indicated an intention to enroll. No student may assume that credit will be given for work at other institutions until a written statement of credit accepted from the Office of the Registrar is received. Grades and credits from other institutions are not included in the student’s grade point average at Huntingdon. The only grade average recorded on the student’s permanent record is that which he or she earns at Huntingdon College.
- A maximum of 64 semester hours earned at two-year institutions may be credited toward the 120 hour degree requirement.
- A maximum of 90 semester hours of transfer work may be credited toward the 120 hour degree requirement.
- Courses used to meet teacher certification requirements must have been completed at a regionally accredited institution.
- Initial transcript evaluations are subject to change for students who do not matriculate within the academic year of admission to the College.
- Other criteria for matriculated students regarding transferring credit from other institutions is available in the College catalog.
- A list of institutions with whom Huntingdon College has an articulation agreement is available on the College’s Consumer Information page.
