Granite State College is joining University of New Hampshire as the College of Professional Studies.


College-Level Equivalency

Students can earn college credit for certain introductory-level courses by achieving satisfactory scores on certain standardized tests, such as CLEP and DSST. Students seeking credit for examinations should work with their advisor to explore how these exams may be applied to your degree program.

Below is a general overview of some of the college-level equivalency testing options. The College awards credits based on recommendations approved by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS). See Catalog for full details.
