CLEP is a way for you to receive college credit for what you already know. By earning qualifying scores on any one or more of the 36 CLEP exams, you can receive credit for the non-major classes. While you obtain credit rather than a letter grade, the cost is just a fraction of a traditional college course. Save yourself time and money by testing out of the non-major subjects that you already know.
