AP Credit and Credit by Exam

Credit may be earned at WKU through the following examination programs:

  • Advanced Placement Program (AP)
  • American College Testing Program (ACT)
  • Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT)
  • College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
  • Departmental examinations developed by WKU departmental faculty committees

The credit hours earned through these examinations will count toward graduation but will not be used to compute grade point averages since a letter grade will not be given.


Students cannot receive Honors credit through any of the above mentioned examination programs.
