Nevada State College accepts test scores such as Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Progam (CLEP), and DANTES/DSST for college credit (with appropriate scores). To have these test scores evaluated, official score sheets must be submitted to the Office of Admissions & Records.

Advanced Placement Credit (AP Credit):

These examinations are for students in high school. Upon receipt of an official score from the College Board, Nevada State College grants credit as specified and assigns a grade of "S" for scores that are a minimum of 3, unless otherwise noted. These credits assigned may be in the form of either elective or course credit, as specified below. Those students who successfully complete CBAPE examinations in French, German, Latin, or Spanish will satisfy the foreign language requirements.

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP credit):

The College-Level Examination Program provides students of any age with the opportunity to demonstrate college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. Credit may be granted and a grade of S assigned upon receipt in the Office of Admissions and Records of an official score report, showing completion of at least one general examination with a score of 500 or above or a subject examination with a score of 50 or above. The general examination(s) should be completed before a student enrolls at Nevada State College, and must be completed before the student achieves sophomore classification at the college. Subject examinations may be taken at any time.

DANTES Exam Credit:

The DANTES/DSST program is an extensive series of examinations in college subjects that are comparable to the final or end-of-course examinations in undergraduate courses. To use either toward college credit at Nevada State College, official test scores and evaluations must be sent from the test center where the tests were taken so that Nevada State College can evaluate which exams have been taken and the credit to be awarded.
