Shorten Your Path to a College Degree with CLEP
The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national program of credit by examination that gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know. Whether you are just entering college and hoping to accelerate your studies, a part-time student concerned with the fastest route to a degree or a working adult thinking about beginning or resuming college, CLEP can help you:
CLEP examinations are computer-based, approximately 90 minutes in length and score reports are available immediately after testing. More than five million people have used CLEP and 2,900 colleges and universities in the United States will recognize credit earned through CLEP.
