We created a short video on how to earn college credit using Study.com. You can view it here.
We have AP, CLEP, UExcel, and DSST courses that are all designed to prepare you for a credit granting exam. Each organization (College Board, Excelsior, Dantes) has their own set of credit-granting exams and testing procedures. You need to pass the credit-granting exam associated with our course in order to earn college credit. More information on these exam policies and our associated courses can be found here.
Using our College Accelerator Edition is the most common method of using our site to earn college credits. We have 90+ courses that are approved by the American Council on Education for ACE CREDIT recommendation and/or by NCCRS, the National College Credit Recommendation Service.
Over 2000 colleges and universities accept ACE credit recommendations. Here is a link that provides a full list of all these schools: http://www2.acenet.edu/CREDITCollegeNetwork/.
Over 1,500 cooperating colleges and universities accept NCCRS credit recommendations. You can search that list here: http://www.nationalccrs.org/organizations/studycom/
Make sure to talk to your school to find out the exact credit transfer process. You can find a complete listing of our credit-recommended courses here: https://study.com/academy/goal/transferable-credit/online-college-credit.html.
To earn credit from our college courses, you need to complete the entire course (by achieving at least an 80% on every quiz) and have an accumulative course (quiz scores, essay scores, project score) score of over 70%. The proctored final exams are only available in our College Accelerator Edition. If you do not have a College Accelerator Edition, you can upgrade your membership at any time by clicking 'Membership and Billing' link within the Profile section of your Dashboard.
