Credit by Exam
Give your past work the recognition it deserves
Undergraduates can earn credit and advanced placement for college-level studies before they even step on Loyola's campus through:
- Advanced Placement (AP)
- College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
- International Baccalaureate (IB) examination
- Cambridge International Examinations
New, first-time freshmen can receive up to 36 hours of credit based on AP/IB/CLEP/Cambridge test results. If you also have transfer credit, the total of your test score credit and transferable credit cannot be more than 36 semester hours. Get more information about the policy for new, first-time freshmen.
All AP, IB, and Cambridge examinations must be completed before enrollment.
The academic subjects and suggested scores accepted during the last academic year are listed here as a guide.
I spent every summer on campus working for the Orientation program, and summertime in Chicago is unlike anywhere else.
