Credit by Examination and the International Baccalaureate Diploma (AP, CLEP, and IBD)


Students may earn credit by examination for satisfactory scores on the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), the College Board Advanced Placement Examination (AP), and through the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBD). Texarkana College will award up to 14 hours through CLEP or AP and up to 24 hours of credit through the IBD (for exam scores of 4 or above) as long as an incoming freshman has earned the IB diploma. Credits earned by examination will be placed on the student’s official transcript after an equal number of hours have been earned in a regular course at Texarkana College.  A grade of CR is posted where credit is added. Students should understand that each college and university has its own policy with respect to credit earned by examination and that any such credit allowed by one institution may not necessarily be accepted at another.
