College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Students may receive CLEP credit by passing selected Subject Examinations with the grade equivalent of “C”. Credit will be placed on the student’s transcript when twelve resident hours have been completed successfully. The number of hours allowed is dependent on the requirements of the department in which the student majors, the certification sought, and the residence requirements of the University. All Prior Learning Assessment credits reflect a grade of “P” and no record is kept of unsuccessful attempts. The tests are given by appointment. The current fee per CLEP test is $87 and checks should be made payable to CLEP. An additional $20 institutional fee is required at the time the appointment is made.
