CLEP Credit

The Office of Admissions will continue to evaluate transfer credit for CLEP exams for new students applying to the University. Qualifying CLEP credits may apply to a degree in the College of Humanities and Social Science (CHSS) if those credits were awarded and reported prior to matriculation at Mason.  

CHSS does not allow CLEP credit for any CHSS courses after matriculation at Mason. 

After matriculation, CHSS students are limited to taking and applying CLEP exam credits for "Information Systems & Computer Applications". A student must submit a study elsewhere request and receive prior approval before taking the "Information Systems & Computer Applications" CLEP exam. The final decision for “Information Systems & Computer Applications” CLEP credit will be made by the College of Engineering and Computing. 

If the study elsewhere is approved, students with a qualifying score on this exam will be awarded credit for IT 104T. Students who require an IT ethics component must meet that requirement with another approved course.
