CLEP Testing

College – Level Examination Program (CLEP) Test

The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP®) is a credit-by-examination program that allows people to demonstrate mastery of college-level material and earn college credit. To help prepare for a CLEP exam, most public libraries and bookstores carry CLEP study guides. Study guides can also be purchased from the College Board
