What is CLEP?

CLEP (the College-Level Examination Program®) offers 34 exams that cover intro-level college course material. With a passing score on one CLEP exam, you could earn three or more college credits at more than 2,900 U.S. colleges and universities.

That prior learning could have taken place through advanced high school courses, independent reading and study, online courseware or textbooks, noncredit courses, or on-the-job training. 

Key CLEP Facts:

  • Students take CLEP exams on a computer at official CLEP test centers.
  • CLEP exams contain multiple-choice questions.
