The College Level Examination Tests provide an opportunity for students to earn college credit by examination. All CLEP exams are now computer-based. We administer all of the exams offered by the College Level Exam Program. Students may send their scores to any institution that accepts CLEP for credit.

Why take CLEP exams?

  • Save time. Get college credit for what you already know. Be rewarded for what you’ve learned through independent study, advanced high school courses, noncredit adult courses, or professional development.
  • Save money. Compare the cost of a CLEP exam, you can save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars in tuition.
  • Make college more interesting. Move right into advanced courses.
  • Graduate on time. CLEP can help you to the finish line if you’re a few credits shy of graduating.
  • Satisfy a proficiency requirement. Demonstrate you’ve already mastered the content of, for example, a basic college level math or language course.

Description of the Exams:

CLEP computer-based exams are composed of multiple-choice questions. The total time allowed on most of the exams is 90 minutes. There are no scheduled rest breaks. Exams requiring calculator use have a calculator in the computer program itself.

After you take the exam, your score is provided to you right away. The only exceptions are the College Composition and College Composition Modular, for which results are sent at a later date.
