There are a variety of ways to earn college credit at Mid even if you've never taken a traditional college course. Whether you're a veteran, have work experience that translates into credit, or you have test scores that qualify you, we can help.

Types of Credit

Mid Michigan College course credit will be granted for the successful completion of articulated course(s) at technical education centers or high schools.

Successful completion is defined as a minimum grade of “B" (3 .0) in the course/s, a requirement noted in each articulation agreement. A High school transcript is required to document grades earned.

Some articulation agreements also require the student to successfully complete Mid Michigan College proficiency testing or a sequential course before credit will be posted to their Mid transcript. These requirements would be noted in the articulation agreement on file with the technical education center or high school. No tuition or fees will be charged for articulated credits under these agreements.

Check specific articulation agreements for the number of credits possible for each articulated course. The opportunity to apply for articulated credit will expire in September, two school years after the technical education center or high school course or program is completed.

Articulated credits will become part of the total number of credits for program completion at Mid and will be listed on the student’s Mid transcript by course code and credit hour(s). High School articulated credit is NOT transferable to other institutions from Mid. No grade will be recorded. At least 12 credits must be completed at Mid to earn a certificate or degree.

Application For High School Articulated Credit

Veterans may be eligible to receive credit for their military training and experiences.

Credit By Exam

Mid offers in-house competency examinations for some of our key, entry-level courses.

There is a fee for this type of test if you receive credits for the course in which you demonstrate competency.

If you do not receive credits for the course, but receive course competency to meet prerequisite requirements, there is no fee for the test.

See the table below for a list of examinations and their respective fees.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) sponsored by the College Board affords students and prospective students the opportunity to demonstrate their academic proficiency in various general areas and specific subjects. Policies concerning the use of CLEP General Examinations at Mid Michigan College are developed and controlled by the Registrar. The course equivalencies are determined by the appropriate Academic Affairs Department.

When a student submits evidence of achievement by CLEP, this evidence will be evaluated by the Registration & Records with credit being granted in appropriate areas. To be eligible for credit for CLEP scores, a student must have been granted regular admission at Mid and an official score report must be on file. CLEP examination credit may not be used to repeat any courses previously taken. Grades for the CLEP examinations, where credit is granted, will be recorded as Credit. (CR)

Interested students should contact Mid's Testing Center. Though Mid is not a CLEP testing site, we can help you find a site near you.

Credit will be allowed for the following CLEP Subject Examinations provided that the score is 50 or above. Note: French level 2 and German level 2 may require scores higher than 50.

Advanced Placement (AP)

AP courses are typically courses offered through high schools that offer academic rigor similar to college-level courses as determined by the College Board (the regulators of ACT and CLEP). At the end of the course, students have the option to pay a fee to take the AP test. If a student passes the test with a score of 3 or better and has verification sent, Mid will award the student credit for that course. However, it is not mandatory that a student has completed an AP course before completing the AP test. This helps ensure that homeschooled students are eligible as well.

See table below for a list of AP test and credit equivalencies.
