Alternative methods for earning university credits

There are a number of methods for earning credit toward your degree that might not be immediately obvious to students which include:

Pre-professional Internship (PPI):This program (PPI) allows Freshmen and Sophomore students who have a part-time job to explore career options and gain general free elective credit toward their degree. For additional information, contact Bonnie Wethington at bonnie.wethington@emich.edu

Study Abroad: An opportunity to take classes in another country while still earning academic credit! Check out all the options today at www.emich.edu/abroad/.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) : The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of 33 examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you've acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships. Download the CLEP registration form.

Learning Beyond the Classroom (LBC) : A wide variety of activities count for LBC credit -- everything from Marching Band participation to a planning committee for a major campus event, from leadership camps to theatre performances.
