Finding Out Whether Your College Accepts CLEP* Exams

It is important that you find out your college’s policy on CLEP exams before you take a CLEP test. You don’t want to find out after you have earned your CLEP credits that your college won’t acknowledge them on your academic record. The easiest and most effective way to find this information is to call up or visit the college you are planning to attend and check what their policy on the CLEP exam is.

Another option is to go to Google and type in “[YOUR SCHOOL HERE] CLEP policy.” This sometimes brings up the school’s policy page, where you can learn if the college accepts CLEP credits and how many tests you can take at once. If you have already received your school’s academic calendar, then the policy is sometime listed under guidelines within the book.

If you have not yet decided which school you are going to attend, then take the time to consider your options carefully.
