Advanced Standing

Bryant University awards up to 30 credits for scores of three or higher on some of the Advanced Placement (AP) tests available through the College Entrance Examination Board. Each AP exam report must be reviewed and approved by Bryant’s Office of Admission.

Bryant University will consider granting up to 12 credits for a limited number of subject examinations available through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).

Credit may also be awarded to students who have successfully completed military service schools as qualified by “A Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the Armed Services.” Students who have significant, relevant work experience may also satisfy certain course requirements through departmental testing programs. There are testing fees associated with several of these advanced placement tests.

Recognizing the strength and quality of the curriculum offered by the International Baccalaureate Program, Bryant University grants advanced-standing credit for acceptable higher level exams with a score of five, six, or seven. Bryant awards up to 30 credits based on the particular curriculum requirements.
