Academic credit for proficiency in a particular subject may be awarded through several types of placement exams at Kent State, including Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Credit by Examination (CBE) and the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). Students may also be placed in a higher level course than required through proficiency demonstrated by such assessments as ACT, SAT, ALEKS and COMPASS, and the requirement for the course will be fulfilled. With assessment testing, however, no credit hours will be awarded , and the minimum number of hours required for the student’s declared academic program will not be reduced.
