(College-Level Examination Program)

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the country. CLEP offers 35 subject examinations that correspond to specific college courses, several of which are listed below. Students planning to challenge freshman level English Composition, Math, or Foreign Language, should do so as early as possible. Results may significantly impact planning for appropriate course sequencing.

The CLEP Test is given by computer in the AEC Department. If you have questions about the computerized CLEP, contact Kristie Poorman in the Academic Enrichment Center at (325) 793-4620.
