The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives students the opportunity to receive credit for knowledge previously acquired by earning qualifying scores on any of 30 examinations. Students can earn credit for knowledge they have acquired through independent study, prior course work, on the job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.
What Do CLEP Exams Cover?
CLEP offers 30 exams in five subject areas, covering material taught in courses that you may generally take in your first two years of college. Most CLEP exams are designed to correspond to one-semester courses, although some correspond to full-year or two-year courses.
Exams are approximately 90 - 120 minutes long, comprised primarily of multiple-choice questions.
