For students interested in earning college credit for previously acquired knowledge, ESU provides a mechanism by which a student can decrease the time needed to complete a degree. An enrolled student, or a prospective student who subsequently enrolls, is permitted to earn university credits in a variety of ways. These means permit a high degree of quality control. Among them are: credit by examination and/or advanced placement as determined by CLEP tests, CEEB tests, or department-developed tests; military service credit, Cambridge examinations, other approved external examinations and independent study or research problems credit.  Total credit earned by means of examination may not exceed 30 of the 124 required for graduation.
