Once Shawnee Community College receives a student’s score from the College Board, the Registrar will send written notification informing the student of the credit to be awarded. However, CLEP credit will not be posted to the student’s academic transcript until the student has completed 12 credit hours at Shawnee Community College.

Credit received from CLEP examinations will not count in the current semester hours and, therefore, does not calculate in part-time/full-time status and/or toward financial aid. The credit will appear on the student’s transcript as outlined below:
