The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a group of standardized tests that assess college-level knowledge in several subject areas that are administered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States created by College Board. There are 2,900 colleges which grant CLEP credit. Each institution awards credit to students who meet the college’s minimum qualifying score for that exam, which is typically 50, but it does vary by school and exam.[3] The tests are useful for students who have obtained knowledge outside the classroom, such as through independent study, job experience, or cultural interaction. CLEP also offers students (including international and home school students) the opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency in subject areas and bypass undergraduate coursework.
