KSU CLEP POLICY | Kent State University



The state of Ohio has adopted a new statewide policy on the awarding of college credit for CLEP exams.  Beginning Fall 2017, the new minimum score required for earning credit increased for twelve exams offered through CLEP.  Additional exam titles will be subject to revised standards beginning January 1, 2018.  All Kent State University students expecting to test for credit under the current Fall 2017 policy should take their exams no later than December 4, 2017.  College Composition test takers would need to take their exam no later than November 27, 2017 in order to allow sufficient time for scoring and mailing

Kent State University students are expected to consult with their academic advisor or college advising office prior to scheduling a CLEP exam to ensure they are eligible to earn CLEP credit within their academic program requirements.
