CLEP - College-Level Examination Program

The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) gives students the opportunity to earn college credit by testing for knowledge acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships. 

CLEP exams cover material taught in courses most students take as requirements in the first two years of college.  Most CLEP exams are 90 minutes in length, except for the College Composition exam, which is 120 minutes and requires essays, and are multiple choice. CLEP offers 33 examinations in five subject areas. Exams may be repeated after a three-month waiting period following the initial test date.  The College Board will nullify results of tests taken more frequently.
