AIU allows students to earn credits for courses taken outside of AIU or for professional experience through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). To earn credits through CLEP, students must submit a copy of an official CLEP score report to be evaluated for this proficiency credit award.

CLEP is a nationally recognized examination designed to evaluate the student's prior professional and academic experience, making it applicable for earning college credit. As a registered CLEP credit-granting institution, AIU can help you choose which CLEP examinations are applicable to your program, in turn helping you move more quickly through your degree program.
