What is CLEP?
The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of examinations in 34 introductory college subjects. These exams allow individuals to earn college credit for what they already know, regardless of how that knowledge was acquired through advanced course work, independent study, work experience, professional development or extracurricular activities. Saint Paul College awards credit for successful scores on CLEP exams.
CLEP exams are approximately 90 minutes long and are administered on computer. Students receive instant score reports following completion of the exam, with the exception of English Composition with Essay.
