How do I get credit for CLEP?
Before you take a CLEP exam, review your college’s CLEP
policy to understand:
§ Which CLEP exams your college accepts
§ What score is needed to get credit
§ How many credits are awarded
When you register for a CLEP exam, request that a copy of
your score report be sent to your college. After receiving
your score, the college will decide whether or not to award
you credit for, or to exempt you from, one or more courses
based on its CLEP credit policy.
