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. By passing the CLEP, students demonstrate their college-level competency in various subjects. Seminole State is a national CLEP testing center, offering the exam to anyone in the Central Florida community who is eligible.
- 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.
- Credit is awarded in accordance with recommendations established by the statewide Articulation Coordinating Committee (ACC).
- CLEP Exam Registration and payment for the voucher are processed through College Board.
- Students cannot receive CLEP credit for a subject if they have already taken the corresponding class and received a grade of "C" or higher.
- Modern States offers free courses to help prepare you to take the CLEP.
Test Day Information
- Students must bring their CLEP voucher with them when they come to the Assessment and Testing Center.
- One form of government-issued ID is required before students are allowed to test. Identification must include the student's name (as it appears on the Exam Registration Voucher) signature, and a recognizable photograph.
