      Acceleration Mechanisms:

  1.

Required scores to earn credit vary by course. Check with the Records Office for details on specific scores for subject areas. You receive credit, but not letter grades, for courses earned through AP. Earned credits are not computed into your GPA. Contact Daytona State's Records Office for AP requirements and information.  AP Exam Chart
  2. College Level Examination Program (CLEP) - The CLEP is the national exam program which offers exams in academic subject matters. Certain scores will result in credit for college courses. (Score requirements vary depending on the institution.) Official CLEP scores should be sent from the College Entrance Examination Board/CLEP to the Admissions Office. If required scores are earned, you will receive credit, but not letter grades for the courses earned through CLEP. Applications, registration materials and test fee information about CLEP are available in Assessment Services Offices on each Daytona State College campus. CLEP Chart
