CLEP (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 Career Services offices. If you have questions about the computerized CLEP, contact Sandy Lane in Old Main room 106 at (325) 793-4880.
