British A-level

British Advanced Level examinations are well-established and internationally recognized. The A-level examinations indicate a level of achievement that may qualify a student for advanced standing. Credit is awarded for A-level examinations if certain requirements are met. Credit awarded by another college or university for A-level examinations is not transferable without proper documentation. Official A-level scores must be submitted to the office of admission. Credit is awarded on a selective basis. Transfer credit from all sources (including A-level) may not exceed 90 quarter hours.
