Credit by Exam Programs assist people in gaining recognition for what they know and can do, regardless of how or where they learned it. College credit earned by examination may be counted toward University Studies, major, minor or elective requirements at Southeast Missouri State University.
Credit is granted through Advanced Placement (AP), local credit through Departmental Examination (DE), DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), and the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Additionally, credit may be earned via a Certified Professional Secretary (CPS) certification, or through the International Baccalaureate Organizations (IBO) program.
Southeast Missouri State University students may qualify for credit by examination as long as they have earned fewer than 90* semester hours and have not enrolled in a college course in the subject for which the examination is taken.
*Graduate Students: Students who have more than 90 hours and are entering the MBA program offered through the College of Business may take the CLEP and DSST to fulfill prerequisite requirements. Please see the MBA Admission web page for more information.
