More than 2,900 U.S. colleges and universities grant credit for CLEP. A college’s CLEP credit policy explains:

  • which CLEP exams are accepted by the institution
  • what CLEP score you need to receive credit
  • how many credits are awarded for a particular CLEP exam

The policy may also include other guidelines, such as the maximum number of credits a student can earn through CLEP. Before signing up for a CLEP exam, talk with your academic advisor to figure out how an exam fits in with your education plan.
