Credit can be earned based on a variety of exams, including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). UWRF does not award credit for these exams that have been recorded on a previous institution's transcript. The student should have the scores sent directly from the testing agency to River Falls.
Military Credit is typically accepted for General Education requirements (Personal Health and Wellness area is often waived for Basic Training completion & Global Perspectives area may be waived for service overseas) and other baccalaureate courses. In order to award credit we must have an official transcript sent using the links below:
