College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The CLEP program may be used for granting university credits to those who demonstrate proficiency in specific subjects. The following are guidelines for accepting credits:

Credits earned by CLEP are granted to enrolled students. Such credits may be counted toward degrees but count as transfer credits and they may not be included in the residency requirement for graduation.

Six semester credits will be given for each of the five areas of the CLEP General Examination wherein a student scores a 50 or above: English Composition, Mathematics, Humanities, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences and History. A maximum of 20 semester credits will be allowed for CLEP General Examinations.

No grades or quality points will be assigned CLEP credits.

A student may not receive credit through CLEP for a course which is a prerequisite for a course already taken nor for an equivalent university course already taken.
