UAA awards credit for satisfactory performance on the following national examinations.  In most cases, passing scores and credits awarded are based on the most current American Council on Education recommendations or departmental approved scores.  Credit for exams will be elective credit or, through agreements with departments, will be equated to UAA courses.

Credit may be received for more than one national exam.

The UAA course equivalency for each national exam is subject to change.

A student desiring credit for a national exam must request that an official report of exam scores be sent to:
