  • Receiving advanced credit

    Get a leg-up before you've even started. You can earn credit toward your degree program if you've completed college-level coursework (think Dual Enrollment or Running Start), taken Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or General Certificate of Education (GCE) A-level or AS-level.

    Here's how it works. Send your unofficial/official test results or college transcripts to We'll provide you with an estimated transfer of credit. You'll end up saving time and money! 

    The sooner we receive your documents, the sooner we can provide you with your individualized evaluation. If you have any questions, reach out to your admissions counselor or email

    NOTE: If you were scheduled to have taken an externally evaluated exam that's since been cancelled due to COVID-19, your calculated mark will still be considered in the same way for meeting enrollment requirements and credit transfer.
