CLEP

College Level Examination Program

CLEP general examinations should be taken before a student enrolls in college and must be taken before completion of 15 semester credits of college work and before completion of any college course in the area that is being tested. Course-equivalent exams should be taken before the student is enrolled in the equivalent course or in any higher-level course for which it is a prerequisite. With departmental permission, a student can take the test for a course in which s/he is enrolled, but this must be done before the end of the first week of classes.
