The lists below identifies which courses are equivalent for St. Edward's University undergraduate and New College credit.

CLEP Equivalents

DSST Equivalents

Credit granted by examination is applicable to a St. Edward's University degree program but may not necessarily be transferable to another institution. Examination credit counts in neither the residence hours nor honors calculations. It is necessary to make arrangements to complete all CLEP and DSST exams prior to certification for graduation. All examination credit appears on the transcript as CR and does not affect the GPA in any way.

Students entering St. Edward’s University as first-time freshmen must take at least one semester of freshman writing on campus regardless of their CLEP College Composition score. 

To see if you are eligible to take a CLEP or DSST exam, please speak with your Academic Advisor and review the eligibility policy.
