Shawnee Community College administers the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) examinations to current and prospective students. All high school graduates (or those with a high school equivalency) are eligible to participate in the CLEP.
 
CLEP examination credit will not be awarded for any course in which the student is presently enrolled. CLEP credit will also not be awarded for any equivalent course in which the student has previously received a grade or which he/she has audited. The College awards credits based on the recommendations from the American Council on Education.
 

Shawnee Community College accepts credit from Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations. This program allows high school students to earn college credit by successfully completing the AP or IB examinations. To receive Shawnee Community College credit, students must earn a score of 3, 4, or 5, on the College Board Advanced Placement examination or a subject score of 4 or higher for IB Diploma Programme subjects accepted for credit. 
 
Students seeking AP/IB credit must request the original score report be sent to the Registrar. Credit received from AP/IB examinations will not count in the current semester hours and does not calculate in part-time/full-time status and/or toward financial aid. Credit granted will appear on the student’s transcript.
