CLEP (College-Level Examination Program®) is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the United States, with more than 2900 college and universities awarding credit for satisfactory scores on CLEP Exams.

With CLEP, a student can earn college credit for what he or she already knows - regardless of where or how that knowledge was acquired - by passing a 90-minute multiple-choice examination.


The 34 CLEP examination subjects fall within the following categories: Composition and Literature; Science and Mathematics; Foreign Languages; History and Social Sciences; and Business.


NOTE: CLEP tests will now be offerend through RCTC's Proctoring Center. If you want to schedule a time for a CLEP test, email or visit the Proctoring Center web page.
