Students and teachers who wish to receive credit for AmeriSpan Language programs have four options:
Pre-approval at your college or university Many times you can obtain credit for participation in an AmeriSpan program from your local university. This usually involves meeting with faculty from your Study Abroad or Foreign Language department. Sometimes your faculty will request a course syllabus or other information. Just let us know what information you need and we will be happy to assist you. Many of AmeriSpan's partner schools have agreements with colleges and universities, whereby participants can earn academic credit for their language study.

CLEP Exams 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 34 examinations. Depending on your college's CLEP policy, a satisfactory score on a CLEP exam can earn you from 3 to 12 college credits. The best part is the cost of an exam is less than $100!
For all transfer of credits from any of these options, it is necessary to check with your own university concerning their relevant transfer policies!
