    Hello everyone!
    I have been a lurker on the forum for a while, and I love the quality of information that is available. I have submitted my credits to be evaluated by Excelsior and and trying to devise a plan. I had taken classes at the community college about 10 years ago with not the best grades on my transcripts for some of the courses. Since Excelsior doesn't accept courses with a D for transfer, i'm curious if the classes are redone by testing out through CLEP or DANTES, will they be considered duplicate upon evaluation for graduation? For instance I received a D in Spanish through the college, if I were to take the CLEP and receive a passing grade, would it be considered a dup?
    Below I have my rough draft of my degree plan, any advice is appreciated!

    If they don't accept your courses, then there won't be anything to duplicate. Therefore, no, you will not run into a duplication problem.

    Also, the Spanish CLEP can be either 6 or 12 credits, never 3. This could save you massive amounts of money. I took both French and Spanish- 24 credits for about $200!!

    Great! I kept reading horror stories about duplication with them, and don't want it to hinder me. Thank you!
