What is CLEP?

CLEP (the College-Level Examination Program®) offers 34 exams that cover intro-level college course material. CLEP was created to help individuals with prior knowledge in a college course subject earn their degree efficiently and inexpensively. That prior learning could have taken place through advanced high school courses, independent reading and study, online courseware or textbooks, noncredit courses, or on-the-job training.
