The college accepts credit by Advanced Placement for scores of 4 and 5. The college also accepts up to 30 credits earned through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). These credits do not satisfy general education requirements in the Linfield Curriculum.
Paracurricular credit is intended to encourage students to participate in college-sponsored skill and activities courses. In this sense, the granting of paracurricular credit for non-college experiences is contrary to the intended purpose of the paracurriculum. However, in special cases when it seems to meet an appropriate educational need, paracurricular credit may be granted upon petition to the Curriculum Committee prior to engaging in the activity.
