A Top Choice for Transfer Students!
Prescott College accepts college-level credit from regionally accredited US colleges or universities for 100 level and higher courses in which a minimum grade of C or the equivalent was obtained. In some cases, college-level credit from US colleges and universities that are not regionally accredited may be transferable via Prescott College's Conversion Portfolio Policy.
Prescott College also accepts a full range of College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests, which measure mastery of college-level introductory course content in a wide range of disciplines. Additionally, Prescott College awards credits for US military services training via the American Council on Education (ACE) endorsement transcripts, AART (Army ACE Registry Transcript), SMART (Sailors/Marines ACE Registry Transcript), and Air University. Prescott College also awards transfer credit for tests administered to military personnel by DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support).
Prior Learning Assesment
We know that learning happens outside the classroom, too, so we provide a process for you to document your life experience for the purpose of awarding additional credit. Ask your admissions counselor about how this works!
