Simpson grants college credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Advanced Placement Programs. A maximum of 24 credit hours may be earned by taking these examinations. CLEP examination credit will be awarded in general subject areas for scaled scores corresponding to the “B” grade in the ACE (American Council on Education) guidelines. AP credit will be granted to students scoring a 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement exam.
