Gaining Academic Credit

Delaware Valley University's Prior Learning Assessment process grants you the ability to attain college credit for experiences and achievements outside of the traditional classroom. This opportunity can save you money and time, and get you closer to graduation based on learning that has already been completed.


There are many different options for you to take advantage of prior learning assessment. You are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors and department chair(s) to discuss whether or not your experience, certificate, or other learning opportunity could qualify you to receive credit toward graduation. Please follow the links below to learn more about your prior learning assessment options.

Curriculum for Agricultural Science Education (CASE) Course Credit

CASE certified teachers often partner with colleges and universities to provide college academic credit to high school students completing CASE courses. Agreements are between students and the credit-granting institution and each institution has specific requirements.

Delaware Valley University offers up to 21 transfer credits to high school students who have successfully completed a specific CASE course taught by a CASE certified teacher. For more information please refer to the CASE chart below, and contact the Executive Director of Admissions, Dr. Thomas W. Speakman, for additional information. Thomas.Speakman@delval.edu

Undergraduate students have the option of taking Math and English placement tests to bypass the remedial level courses required. For information on placement testing please contact the Office of Student Success. They can be reached at Success@delval.edu.

All incoming students are placed into Fundamentals of Writing (EN 0012) or College Writing I (EN 1101) based on their SAT score, ACT score, OR overall high school GPA.

In order to place into College Writing I, students must meet at least ONE of the following:

  • Score of 480 or higher on the SAT Evidence-Based Reading and Writing exam (EBRW)
  • Score of 18 or above on the ACT English Language Arts exam (ELA)
  • Overall high school GPA of 2.6 or above

Students who do not meet the above criteria are placed into Fundamentals of Writing (EN 0012).

Exceptions are as follows:

  • Students who have received transfer credits in English Composition
  • Students who have received a score of 3 or better on the AP English exam

Note: College Writing I (EN 1101) is the first college-level writing course. It is worth 3 credits which count toward a student’s required credits for graduation. The grade received in this class is calculated into a student’s GPA. EN 1101 is also a prerequisite for several courses.

Fundamentals of Writing (EN 0012) is a pass/no pass remedial writing course whose aim is to prepare students for success in College Writing I (EN 1101). Students receive three credits, but those credits will not count toward required credits for graduation, and the grade received in the class will not be calculated into a student’s GPA.

If a student places into Fundamentals of Writing (EN 0012) but believes they have strong writing skills and could do well in College Writing I (EN 1101), they have the option to challenge their English placement by taking a diagnostic essay exam during orientation.

All incoming students will be placed in a mathematics course based on standardized test scores or an online placement exam.

Standardized Test Placement:

  • Students who score below 500 on the SAT Mathematics section will be enrolled in MP 0010, Fundamentals of Algebra. The ACT Score range for this placement is 0-16.
  • Students who score between 501 and 640 on the SAT Mathematics section will be enrolled in MP 1102, College Algebra. The ACT Score range for this placement is 17-24. Students in this range whose academic programs prefer that they begin with MP 1203, Elementary Functions, or MP 1210, Applied Mathematics, can complete an online diagnostic assessment to determine appropriate course selection.
  • Students who score 640 or higher on the SAT-Mathematics section may enroll in MP 1204, Calculus I, or a lower-level Mathematics course based upon program requirements. For this placement, ACT scores must be 25 or greater.

Some exceptions to these placements include the following:

  • Students who have received advanced placement (AP) credit for Calculus I
  • Students who have received transfer credit for a mathematics course taken at another institution and approved by the Mathematics and Physics Department as equivalent to any of the above courses.

For students who were admitted to Delaware Valley University in programs not requiring standardized test scores, the results of a placement exam will determine the mathematics course in which they will be enrolled. Students who pass Part 1 of the Exam will be enrolled in College Algebra. Students who pass Part 2 of the Exam will be enrolled in Elementary Functions or Applied Mathematics. Students who pass Part 3 will be enrolled in Calculus I. Students wanting to take placement exams beyond Part 1 must pass Part 1 before attempting Part 2. Part 2 of the Exam must be passed before Part 3 is attempted.

*Fundamentals of Algebra (MP 0010) is a pass/no pass remedial algebra course whose aim is to prepare students for success in College Algebra (MP 1102). Students receive three credits, but those credits will not count toward required credits for graduation, and the grade received in the class will not be calculated into a student’s GPA. Students assigned to this course are required to take MP 1102 and MP 1203 or MP 1210.

CLEP Exams are an optional test offered to high school students to receive college credit for subjects students already excel in. For more information on how to take a CLEP test or order your scores please visit this link.

For students who have a mastery of a subject area, they can take advantage of the Course Challenge opportunity. A matriculated student with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 who believes s/he has the competence in the subject matter of a course worthy of a grade of “C” or better in that course may petition the Registrar for the opportunity to demonstrate that competence via a course challenge. After reviewing the student’s academic record, the Registrar will establish whether the student has the right to challenge the course based on the restrictions / criteria outlined in the college catalog.
A course challenge is not permitted if the student has been enrolled in the course for any period of time. Also, all prerequisites must be satisfied prior to the approval of a course challenge. Unsuccessful challengers will have no opportunity to challenge the course again. If a qualified instructor is not available, the course challenge will not take place.
The student will consult with the chair of the department that teaches the course to request an appropriate faculty member to administer the challenge. If a qualified instructor is not available, the course challenge will not take place.
The fee for a course challenge is not included in the regular tuition charges. Contact the Bursar’s Office for the fees associated with challenging a course.

Students may petition to challenge up to five courses while attending Del Val. Not all courses may be challenged. Courses may be challenged only with the consent of the department that teaches the course. Please follow this link to review the form.

Students who have completed International Baccalaureate (IB) courses at either the "Higher Level" (HL) or "Standard Level" (SL) and have successfully completed the corresponding IB examinations and obtained a score of 5 or higher on the Higher Level (HL) or a 7 or higher on Standard Level (SL) examinations may be entitled to credit at Delaware Valley University.
