Missouri State University

Credit by Examination

Missouri State University recognizes four Credit By Examination programs: Advanced Placement (AP); College Level Examination Program (CLEP); International Baccalaureate Program (IB); and Missouri State departmental examinations. College credits earned through these programs may count toward degree requirements and allow qualified students to take advanced courses earlier in their college career. Credit by examination courses do not carry a letter grade and do not impact grade point average. Missouri State does not award credit in transfer for credit by examination granted by another institution. Students must request that original score reports be sent directly to the Office of Admissions to be considered for credit. The Missouri State Credit by Examination policy is subject to change. Please refer to the web site at: www.missouristate.edu/admissions/credbyexam.htm for the complete current policy including minimum scores required for credit.
