This examination is offered by the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) and allows high school students opportunities to earn college level credits. Students who earn scores of three or higher may receive college level credits for similar courses in FAMU. See the list below for the AP Exam required scores and similar courses. *Credits allowed are for introductory courses
B. College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
