College Level Examination Program

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a group of standardized tests that assess college-level knowledge in several subject areas. Many colleges grant credit to students who meet their minimum qualifying score. 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 international and home-schooled students the opportunity to demonstrate their proficiency in subject areas and bypass undergraduate coursework.

Learn more about taking the CLEP at AACC.
