The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers exams that are administered at colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad.
- The CLEP exam is a nationally recognized credit-by-examination program.
- By passing a CLEP exam, students can earn college credit for the associated course without having to take the course.
- CLEP registration and payment are processed through College Board and students must bring their voucher with them when they come to the Assessment and Testing Center on all campuses.
- Only two exams may be administered per day.
- One (1) form of government-issued identification is required before students are allowed to test. Identification must include the student's name and signature, as well as a recognizable photograph.
- Students cannot receive CLEP credit for a subject if they have already taken the corresponding class and received a grade of "C" or higher.
- Seminole State's counselors and advisors will assist students in the use of CLEP examinations as it relates to their program of study.
- Credit is awarded in accordance with recommendations established by the statewide Articulation Coordinating Committee (ACC).
