CLEP, AP, or Dual Enrollment?

Different types of college credit help your teen in different ways and accomplish different goals. The biggest question is which one will serve YOUR TEEN better than the others?

CLEP, Advanced Placement (AP), and dual enrollment are really going to serve different audiences for different reasons. There really isn’t one “best” option for all students, but let’s start with a few key differences between them.

Credit by Exam

Both CLEP and AP are forms of earning college credit by exam. This is distinctly different than earning college credit by taking a course. When you attempt credit by exam, there are a few big points to consider.

Credit by Course

Dual enrollment is most typically what you think of when you think of earning college credit. In this instance, a student is taking a college course (on campus or online) for credit. The student has a teacher or professor, follows a calendar, and receives a grade on a college transcript. The homeschool parent awards high school credit for the work.
