College Board: CLEP
Earn College Credit with CLEP Exams
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of examinations, which allow students to show their knowledge in a wide range of subjects. The purpose of CLEP is to provide a means for students to receive college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional college classroom.

CLEP exams help you receive college credit for what you already know, for a fraction of the cost of a college course. You can prepare for and take the exams on your own time, whether you’re getting a head start on college or working to finish your degree.
- Save money. A CLEP exam costs $85—a fraction of the average college cost, plus $25 registration fee. Exams are free to all eligible military personnel and select civilian employees.
- Earn college credit. A passing score on a CLEP exam can earn you three or more college credits.
- Save time. With CLEP exams you can place out of introductory courses and move more quickly towards your major or other areas of study.
CLEP examinations may run 90 minutes in duration. (Exceptions: College Composition-120 minutes and College Composition Modular with essay-160 minutes).
