- Quarter hours earned at previous institutions are modified to semester hours. One quarter hour equals 0.67 semester hours.
- Students may earn credits and/or advanced standing through departmental proficiency examinations, Advanced Placement Program, College Level Examination and through military service and lifelong experience.
