CLEP Key

What is CLEP?

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives students the opportunity to demonstrate prior learning and to earn credit for that knowledge by earning qualifying scores on any of the 34 CLEP examinations. The Testing Services Department at the University of Cincinnnati offers all 34 CLEP tests (with the exception of the optional essays) in our proctored testing computer lab. Descriptions of all 34 exams are provided by CollegeBoard.

How is CLEP credit awarded at the University of Cincinnati?

UC awards some kind of credit for most CLEP exams. However, it is best to speak with your advisor before taking an exam to find out exactly how CLEP credits will apply to your degree program. The University of Cincinnati has identified a list of CLEP exams that will be accepted for credit, along with the minimum score required to receive that credit. Scores falling below the minimum will not be considered.

If you are a veteran or other military personnel, visit CollegeBoard for important information on CLEP testing.
