The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program. CLEP provides students of any age with the opportunity to demonstrate college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses.
Taking a CLEP exam can shorten the time it takes to earn your degree and can allow you to skip general introductory courses. CLEP exams can reduce the number of courses you need to take to graduate, saving hundreds of dollars in tuition. More information about CLEP can be found here.
