Credit by Exam

You may be eligible to receive ICC credit for certain courses if you’ve completed AP, CLEP, or IB exams. Before ICC awards these credits, you must complete at least one course at ICC. There is a maximum number of credits you can earn from AP, CLEP, and IB.

  • If you are pursuing a degree that requires 60 credit hours or more, you can apply for up to 30 credit hours earned through AP, CLEP, or IB to earn your degree.
  • If you are pursuing a credential requiring fewer than 60 hours, a maximum of 70% of your credits can be earned through AP, CLEP, or IB.

To earn credits for AP, CLEP, or IB, you must have official score reports sent to ICC directly from AP, CLEP, or IB. Check their websites for details. These credits will be indicated on your ICC transcript as other credits applied, listing the equivalent course number, title and credit hours. Grades and honor points are not assigned to these credits.
