Achieve only designs its accelerated programs around accredited colleges and universities. While testing-out of college courses has been around forever, it’s not something that most students are familiar with and this often raises the question of accreditation. Rest assured that Achieve is 100% committed to making sure that you end up with the exact same accredited degree as if you were going on campus – only with less busywork.
Our credit-by-exam program prepares you to test-out of college classes allowing you to earn full college credit for a semester-long class by passing just one standardized exam.
Most of the exams you will take will be CLEP Exams or DSST exams (used to be known as DANTES Exams).
The College Board’s College-Level Examination Program* (CLEP) exams you pass will translate to credits accepted by over 2,900 colleges and universities in the U.S., and it’s been the most widely trusted Credit-by-Examination test-out program for over 40 years and is administered in more than 1,800 test centers.
