    Can't wait to sit down and talk about what credits will transfer. Has anyone done so already? I have taken a&p 1 and 2, micro, human growth and development, etc. I'm hoping all my credits will transfer and all I'll have left to take are the nursing courses. Does anyone know if you can graduate earlier than 21 months?
    Hey Lindsey. Oberley - I hope all your credits transfer. You are lucky to have already knocked out some courses. I have to CLEP a few of mine because I graduated with a Bachelor's in Education in '09. Apparently any classes taken 5 or more years ago; you have to CLEP. Also, I don't think you can graduate earlier. You will just have a lighter load each semester. Which is just as good in my opinion.

    I have another question. I am transferring in 8 courses. Of those courses 2 of them I have to CLEP. How do I go about doing that? Is it a test I have to take? It is for Psy 1 and English comp 1.

    CLEP is a test that you take and if your score is high enough, you'll receive credit for that course; so you will CLEP out of the course. Go to http://clep.collegeboard.org/exam for info on the test, study guides, and how to register. Good luck!
