CLEP and Challenge


Credit by Exam is a means by which a student who is proficient in an academic subject may take either a Challenge exam or a CLEP exam to earn credit.

Inquiries concerning Challenge exams should be directed to the division or department in which the course is being taught. Challenge exams may only be taken one time for each particular course.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests are CollegeBoard standardized tests administered by personnel in the Testing Center.
