    I have just passed the spanish CLEP with a 79. The paper says 6 credits for spanish I and 12 credits for spanish II.
    Will a college allow all 18 credits? If so, do you know which ones do?

    Thank you!

    I believe Spanish II includes the six credits from I for a total of 12 credits.

    Thank you for your prompt response!
    Do you know which colleges accept the full 12 credits on an associates? (If any)
    Can you use these credit toward humanities for example?

    Thanks again!

    There would be way too many to list, and it would take forever to find all of them. You should start by determining which colleges fit your needs and go from there.

    Excelsior offers the associates I want, but if they only grant 6 credit for instance, perhaps it's better to look at another college.

    Thank you for your advice!

    Charter oak awards 12 for it, I think Thomas Edison does too.

    If you're that good at Spanish, for example if you're a native speaker who writes well, and you're interested in schools like Excelsior, Charter Oak, and TESC that are liberal on credit by examination, then you should ask whether there are any other tests you could take that would be worth more than 12 credits. Ask them about FLATS and Berlitz, for example.

    The NYU exam grants up to 16 credits with 4 being upper level. Some schools will not grant credit if it is one's narive language!

    NYUFLP is a good deal, if the school for which one is taking it will accept it. I received credit for having taken and done reasonably well in the NYUFLP in a more obscure language in my AA at Thomas Edison State College, but those credits did not transfer to my Charter Oak BA program - COSC does not accept the NYUFLP. My 12 CLEP Spanish credits, on the other hand, made the cut.
