CLEP Credit Equivalencies

The following CLEP course credit is awarded by Heidelberg University. Unless otherwise noted, American Council on Education recommendations are followed when determining required scores for awarding credit. Credit earned through CLEP and portfolio may be completed at any time during a student's undergraduate program; however, every effort should be made to encourage students to take CLEP examinations as early as possible in their programs. Non-coursework hours, i.e. hours earned by examination, may apply toward the degree so long as the last 30 semester hours of coursework have been completed at Heidelberg University. Prior to registering for a test, be sure to check availability of the examination.

To have a course evaluated, an official transcript must be requested and sent directly to the Heidelberg University Registrar’s Office. When completing a CLEP application, or requesting scores, 1292 is the Heidelberg code.
