If you would like to receive advanced standing credit from Flagler College for advanced work completed from any of these examinations, please submit an original score report from the Examination Board, and credit will be awarded.

If you would like to receive credit for matriculation exams encompassing thirteen years of study or for post-secondary work completed in a college, university, or diploma program, you must provide a professional credit evaluation.
