College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Prescott College accepts a full range of College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests which measure mastery of college-level introductory course content in a wide range of disciplines. To receive credit for successful performance on a CLEP examination an official transcript must be sent by the CLEP Transcript Service. Prescott College will not accept a transcript or score report submitted by the student, nor will credit be awarded based on another institution’s prior evaluation.
Regionally Accredited US Colleges or Universities
Prescott College will transfer in college-level credit from regionally accredited US colleges or universities for courses in which a grade of C or the equivalent was obtained. In some cases college-level credit from US colleges and universities that are not regionally accredited may be transferable via Prescott College's Conversion Portfolio Policy. Students desiring to transfer such credits should contact the Office of Admissions to determine the applicability of this policy to their educational background. Once enrolled, students work with their academic advisor to determine how their transfer credits will apply to their degree plan.

In accordance with Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, all veterans utilizing GI Bill Education Benefits must submit for military transcripts while entering Prescott College.
Prescott College awards transfer credits for US military services training via the American Council on Education (ACE) endorsement transcripts: AART (Army ACE Registry Transcript), SMART (Sailors/Marines ACE Registry Transcript) and Air University. Prescott College also awards transfer credit for tests administered to military personnel by DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support). AART and SMART transcripts and DANTES scores will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis with faculty input. Only those courses that pertain to a student's degree program will be awarded transfer credit.
International Transfer Credits
College-level credit from non-US institutions will be transferred according to current guidelines of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Offices (AACRAO). Transcripts from other countries must be evaluated by an international credential evaluation service. They produce an "official report" which we use for evaluation. The student is responsible for all costs associated with this evaluation. The evaluation process can take several weeks to complete.
