Earn Credit by Examination

The University of North Carolina Wilmington participates in the advanced placement programs of the Educational Testing Service (ETS) by awarding academic credit to students who achieve acceptable scores on those examinations determined to have a UNC Wilmington course equivalent. For students who excel in certain subject areas, college freshman level course work may be repetitious. Thus, in an effort to alleviate duplication at the university level, to promote academic motivation and to provide assistance toward educational goals; qualified students are encouraged to take advantage of credit-by-examination opportunities offered through Advanced Placement, College Level Examination Programs, International Baccalaureate, and Dantes Subject Standardized Tests.

I. Advanced Placement Program (AP)

II. College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
