College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The CLEP enables nontraditional and traditional students the ability to earn college credit solely by examination. Underlying the core program believes that the future calls for more education for all citizens; flexibility, innovation, and independent study are essential.

The CLEP test is a timed computer-based test offered for some entry-level degree courses. Contact the appropriate institution for their CLEP score requirements.
Successful CLEP scores may earn 3, 6, or 8 credits depending on the rating and the institution's policies. For CSN, please visit the current Student handbook online for the latest cut scores.
