Flexible Ways to Earn Undergraduate Credit College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The School of Continuing Studies awards credit based on acceptable performance on specified tests of the College Level Examination Program. Generally, a student may not attempt credit by examination for a course in which a failing grade was received or for a basic course in those areas in which acceptable college credit has been earned at a more advanced level. For information about general and subject examinations, contact the School of Continuing Studies.

American Council on Education (ACE)

ACE’s College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT) reviews and offers college-level credit recommendations for many training courses, apprenticeship programs and examination. An official ACE Credit Recommendations Transcript must be submitted directly to the School of Continuing Studies for review of the equivalency and transfer. For more information on ACE or to order a transcript contact the web site at http://www.acenet.edu.

Advanced Placement Program (AP)

The School of Continuing Studies participates in the Advance Placement program of the College Board. A student that successfully completed AP examinations prior to their entry in a college-level program may have official scores submitted to the University for review. Scores submitted within ten years of completion of the examination will be considered for the quivalency and transfer of credit. To order test scores contact www.ETS.org.

Independent Study

An independent study is a course taken with faculty supervision for knowledge enhancement beyond the courses offered in a particular area of interest. In rare cases, when scheduling or other conflicts exist, a regular course may be taken as an independent study. Independent study courses may be used in the Areas of Study and General Distribution and may be used to enhance courses in the major. Consult with your academic advisor before applying to earn credit by independent study.

Transfer Credit

Courses offered in transfer will be evaluated for acceptance provided the work was taken at an institution accredited as degree-granting by a recognized regional accrediting body for higher education at the time the course work is completed. A grade of or equivalent to C (2.0) or better must have been earned in the particular course. Course work accepted in transfer shall be applied to specific degree requirements subject to the discretion of the School of Continuing Studies. Transfer work will be accepted during the final semester of a program only with prior approval. CLEP exams are considered transfer credits. Additional information on our transfer policy is located in the current edition of our catalog. Portfolio Assessment of Prior Learning Yet another way for students to earn academic credit is by portfolio assessment of prior learning. This involves developing a learning portfolio that demonstrates college-level learning that occurred on the job or during training, through volunteer work or by other means. By preparing and submitting a learning portfolio, SCS students can earn up to 30 credits toward a bachelor’s degree and 15 credits toward an associate’s degree. Six hours of portfolio credit may be applied toward the certificate or toward the major. Students become eligible to submit portfolios after completing 12 semester hours at the University of Richmond. Additional information on portfolio assessment of prior learning is located in the current edition of our catalog.

Confidentiality

University of Richmond procedures and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (P.L. 93-380) as amended, prohibit the unauthorized release of confidential information about individual students. However, directory information is not considered to be confidential and may be published or otherwise released. The University of Richmond has

Rights With Respect to Educational Records

The Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. They are: 1) The right to inspect and review their records within 45 days of the date the University receives a request for access. Students should submit to the University Registrar a written request that identifies the record(s) they wish to inspect. The Registrar will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place the records may be inspected. 2) The right to request the amendment of education records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the University of Richmond to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write the University Registrar, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading.

Please review your schedule on BannerWeb before classes begin to verify class location.

If the University of Richmond decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University will notify the student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing. 3) The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is defined as a person employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the University of Richmond has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfilled his or her professional responsibility. 4) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the University of Richmond to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20202-4605 The University of Richmond’s complete FERPA Policy Statement is available as part of the Office of the University Registrar’s Web page at www.richmond.edu/academics/registrar/ferpa.html or by contacting the Office of the University Registrar.
