What is The College Level Examination Program (CLEP)?

The CLEP is a series of computer based exams that allows you an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge in English, Spanish, French, Math, History, Biology, Chemistry and many other subjects and earn college credit for it. The exams are composed of multiple-choice questions and are 90 minutes long. Official score reports are available immediately after the test, allowing you to select appropriate courses when scheduling classes.

Successful Completion of any of these exams gives you an opportunity to advance more quickly through college. It saves money too!
