Exam Equivalency Chart
The Exam Equivalency Chart provides guidance on transfer exams offered through CLEP and DSST. Review this list to determine acceptable transfer exams. Students can register online to take exams at the university's Testing Center (located in Moody Hall) or at any approved testing center. Transfer exams still require students submit the Transfer Work Approval Request form to their academic advisor as part of the pre-approval process.
Please fill out the form (or paste into the body of an email) and email it directly to your advisor.
