CLEP Testing

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Examination Program is a nationally recognized service for an individual to gain credit by examination. Examinations are offered in a variety of subject areas. CLEP provides students of any age with the opportunity to demonstrate college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. There are 2,900 colleges that grant credit and/or advanced standing for CLEP exams.

Each exam is 90 minutes long, and, except for English Composition with Essay, is made up primarily of multiple-choice questions; however, some exams do have fill-ins.  You can learn more about the exams, see example questions, and purchase study guides at the College Board website. CLEP examinations are only given on the Highland campus and only by appointment.
