Admission for Transfer Students

CCBC will accept a maximum of 45 credits through Credits by Examination, CLEP, Transfer Courses, Advanced Standing, Credit for Life Experience and Military Programs or any combination is applicable to the student’s degree program.

Credit by Examination

Credit for certain courses may be established through a proficiency exam. Students pursuing credit by exam should not register for the course in which they hope to establish credit. In addition, students should not have taken the course, or its equivalent, previously either at CCBC or another school. Full-time students receiving financial aid should note that opting for credit by exam may influence and reduce their financial aid awards. Additionally, students must enroll for and successfully complete a minimum of 15 credits of program coursework at CCBC in order to have the credits earned through examination placed on their transcripts. The credits will appear on the transcript designated “Credit by Examination.” Students who have received credit by examination for a course are permitted to subsequently register for the course. However, the last grade issued will be the only grade included in their cumulative quality point average. For these purposes, the “last grade” refers to A, B, C, D, or F only.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Examination Program of the College Entrance Examination Board is recognized by CCBC. This program enables individuals who have acquired education in a non-traditional way to become eligible for credit consideration on the basis of performance on the College Level Examination. In accepting CLEP credits, credits shall be limited to the selective specialized subject area examinations and not include the general examinations except for the General Examination English Composition with Essay.

The College will accept the minimum cut-off score recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) for awarding credit.

Although CLEP examinations are not offered at CCBC, they are available at several local colleges and universities for a fee. Students interested in taking CLEP examinations should contact the Counseling Office.

Any student who desires to transfer subject examination CLEP credits to CCBC should submit all official test scores to:

Credit for Life Experience

College Credit FastTrack is a new initiative undertaken by Pennsylvania’s 14 community colleges using money from the Federal TAACCCT Grant Program. It is the first statewide community college sector portal designed to facilitate Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) in the nation. PLA enables adult students to earn college credit for learning they have done on the job, in the military, or on their own, reducing the time and costs associated with earning a degree.
