College Level Examination Program
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is designed for students to earn college credit after completing the exam. The CLEP is a 90-minute test. An unofficial copy of the score report is printed upon departure from the testing room. The College Composition includes 50 multiple-choice questions (50 minutes) and two essays (70 minutes), which allows a total of 120 minutes. Essay results will be ready in approximately six weeks and may be accessed through CLEP. (Numerical scores from the multiple-choice portion of the exam by themselves will not suffice for credit, nor will they guarantee credit).
Advantages to taking the CLEP Exam:
- Save Time - Get college credit for what you already know. Be rewarded for what you've learned through independent study, advanced high school courses, noncredit adult courses, or professional development.
- Save Money - The CLEP exam's total cost is either $114 or $129.
- Make College More Interesting - Move right into advanced courses.
- Graduate on Time - The CLEP can help you to the finish line if you're a few credits shy of graduating. Great for dual-degree candidates or students just a few credits shy of graduation.
CLEP is a great way for homeschoolers and stay-at-home parents to earn college credit for a little amount of time and money.
CLEP provides students of any age with the opportunity to gain college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. UAFS provides this avenue through which above-average students may seek advanced standing. Motivated, independent learners may want to explore the possibility of obtaining credit through CLEP. If you are interested in CLEP, consult your college advisor regarding degree requirements and CLEP credit.
