College-level Examination Program

The College-level Examination Program is administered through the College Board to provide documentation of college-level achievement that may qualify a student for advanced standing. CLEP credit is awarded if certain requirements are met. Credit awarded by another college or university for CLEP is not transferable without proper documentation. Official CLEP scores from the College Board must be submitted to the office of admission. A maximum of 45 quarter hours of CLEP credit may be awarded. Transfer credit from all sources (including CLEP) may not exceed 90 quarter hours.

CLEP credit — For exams completed since July 2001
