Potential Opportunities for Organizational Leadership Majors to Receive College Credit

  • Students who have military training and/or coursework from professional training schools should consider contracting with Excelsior College’s OneTranscript® service to have prior learning and courses transcripted into one consolidated transcript document. Please allow 4-6 weeks for Excelsior College to prepare a personal copy of your transcript after you submit the application and all your official documents. Information about Excelsior College’s OneTranscript® service can be found at: http://www.excelsior.edu/onetranscript. Students can download the application and additional information to print on paper here: http://www.excelsior.edu/c/document_library/get_file?uuid=0ce31366-2987-4dd2-8448-c8d7093a02c6&groupId=78666.
  • Students who have work experience/prior learning, professional training, and/or licenses may want to consider creating their prior-learning portfolios to earn college credit for what they already know and have learned. Charter Oak State College offers prior-learning portfolios assessments for college credit. Information can be found on Charter Oak’s website:  http://www.charteroak.edu/prior-learning-assessment/ Additional information for this opportunity can be found on Charter Oak’s FAQ web page:  http://www.charteroak.edu/current/programs/portfolio/faq.cfm
  • Students may earn credit by exam in select subject areas. The College-Level Examination Program® or CLEP provides students of any age with the opportunity to demonstrate college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. By receiving a satisfactory score, students can earn from 3 to 12 college credits toward a college degree for each CLEP exam taken, depending on the exam subject and the policy of the college or university. Students wanting to take advantage of the opportunity to earn credit by exam can do so through the Texas A&M University-Commerce testing center or through UExcel® at a Pearson VUE location.

Please note: Costs for contracting with Excelsior OneTranscript, UExcel®, CLEPs, CAEL’s, and Charter Oak State College learning portfolios are the responsibility of the student and in addition to the per term tuition rate. Texas A&M University-Commerce is not affiliated with these third party agencies.

Texas A&M University-Commerce accepts transfer credit from universities accredited through regional, national, and professional and specialized accrediting agencies on a course by course basis as determined by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Questions concerning the evaluation of transfer credit should be directed to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (903-886-5000).
