Students are encouraged to decrease the time required to complete a degree by gaining credit for knowledge they have obtained. One way in which this may be accomplished is through Advanced Placement (AP).

Further ways of earning credit include departmental challenges (Modern Language, for instance), Prior Learning Assessment, and credit awarded for military experience or programs accredited through the American Council on Education (ACE) and the National College Credit Reco mmendation Service (NCCRS).
