College Level Examination Program


The College Board, which develops the CLEP tests, describes the program as follows on their web site:

The College Level Examination Program® (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of its 33 examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you've acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits or internships.
