What is a CLEP Exam and why should I take it?
Developed by the College Board, the organization that administers the AP Program and SAT, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) has been the most widely trusted credit-by-examination program for over 40 years, accepted by 2,900 colleges and universities.
CLEP exams test mastery of college-level material acquired in a variety of ways — through general academic instructions, significant independent study or extracurricular work. CLEP exam-takers include adults just entering or returning to school, military service members and traditional college students.
CLEP offers 33 exams in five subject areas, covering material taught in courses that you may generally take in your first two years of college. By passing a CLEP exam, you can earn 3 or more college credits and save hundreds of dollars off of your tuition costs.
The cost for the CLEP exam is $89 for 3 college credits. All testing is done in the computer bab here at the Armstrong Center for Community Learning. Compared to the average tuition cost of $750 for 3 college credits, this is a great deal!
