College Level Examination Program

Earn your degree efficiently and inexpensively with CLEP! CLEP (the College-Level Examination Program®) offers 33 exams that cover intro-level college course material.

CLEP was created to help individuals with prior knowledge in a college course subject earn their degree efficiently and inexpensively. That prior learning could have taken place through advanced high school courses, independent reading and study, online coursework or textbooks, noncredit courses or on-the-job training.
