College Credit Earned in High School

Students with Running Start Credits: Credits earned under Running Start in the state of Washington are treated like any other transfer credits. If you're a Running Start student, you must meet all freshman admission criteria and have a minimum college GPA of a 2.0 or better.

If you're a Running Start student who's graduating from high school this year, be sure to apply as Freshman, not as a transfer student.

College in the High School Credits: Freshman students with fewer than 40 transferable credits, including credits earned through college in the high school programs, must meet freshman admission criteria. College in the high school courses will be accepted as transfer credit if they are from a regionally-accredited college or university, and are consistent with our general transfer credit policy.

Advanced Placement: You'll receive credit for Advanced Placement examinations given by the College Board after we receive your official scores.  The AP chart shows current score requirements and corresponding credits awarded at EWU.

International Baccalaureate: You'll receive credit for Higher Level International Baccalaureate exam results of "5" or better after we receive your official scores. Acceptability of credits toward major requirements or GECRs is determined by individual departments. The IB chart shows current score requirements and corresponding credits awarded at EWU.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP): You can receive credit for CLEP tests after we receive your official scores. Acceptability of credits toward major requirements or general education requirements is determined by individual departments. The CLEP chart shows current score requirements and corresponding credits awarded at EWU.
