Credit by Examination

Students may earn credit by examination for satisfactory scores on the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude
Test (SAT), College Board Advanced Placement Examinations (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and subject
tests and challenge examinations. Credit is placed on the transcript the first semester the student enrolls at WTAMU.

Credit by examination is exactly the same as successfully passing the equivalent WTAMU course. A letter grade of “S” is assigned if the student achieves the required scores; this grade does not figure into grade point averages. ACT or SAT credit may be obtained for the following courses and scores.


Course ACT SAT
ENGL 1301 28 620
MATH 1314 24 560
