Prior Learning Assessment for Course Credit (Advanced Placement, Advanced Standing, ACE, ACTFL, CLEP, Excelsior, DSST/DANTES, and IB)- College credit may be earned in a number of different ways. You might have attended another college, served in the military, taken some standardized tests, or even taken an Advanced Standing exam in an academic department at Fort Hays State. Kelly Center Testing Services also has additional information and specifics on a number of the standardized exams they offer (CLEP, DSST, Prometric) as well as score requirements for the awarding of FHSU credit. Here is a printable list of International Baccalaureate Equivalencies.
If you have attended another college or university in the United States, you will be interested to find out more details about the Transfer Agreement and Articulation Guide. If you have attended area community colleges or universities, visit our community college transfer database or four-year college/university database to see how your previous classes might transfer to Fort Hays State. If your area college is not listed, or you also wish to determine different degree scenarios, check out the Degree Programs/Equivalencies database or contact your degree analyst in the Registrar's Office.
If you have attended the equivalent of a post-secondary school outside the United States, you may be eligible for transfer credit. Students wishing to have foreign transcript credit considered for transfer must have the transcript evaluated by an international credential evaluation company. Fort Hays will consider evaluations by AACRAO or any member of NACES. If you choose to have your international transcript evaluated, be sure to complete the evaluation company's application as they direct you and if given the option, choose the "course by course" evaluation. Have the evaluator send a copy of their report directly to Fort Hays State University, Registrar's Office, 600 Park Street, Hays, KS 67601. The transferability of the credit will not be determined prior to your admission. The evaluation is NOT an admission requirement but is required if you desire your prior international work considered for transfer.
Transfer work from any other college/university and advanced credit from qualifying credit-by-examination programs is only recorded for enrolled students who are in a signed degree program at Fort Hays State University. FHSU will not record transfer work or advanced credit for non-degree students or for students who have not returned to FHSU after a prior enrollment.
