The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams allow students who feel that they already have sufficient knowledge in a given subject to accelerate their learning by taking an examination in a particular subject. If the student receives a passing grade (as defined by their college institution) on the test, the course will then be defined as "equivalent."
Students may obtain up to 60 credits (Baccaluareate) or 30 credits (Associate) toward their degree from credits earned from the Advanced Placement or CLEP (College Level Examination Program)
College credit may be granted to entering students who perform satisfactorily on the College Level Examination Program® (CLEP), The following regulations apply to students who earn credit and/or advanced standing:
