COLLEGE LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP)

CLEP® exam registration and payments must be made by test-takers online at https://clep.collegeboard.org. Cost per exam is $89.

Please designate Clarion University — Venango as your score recipient if you would like scores sent to Clarion University, Clarion University — Venango, or Clarion University — Somerset.  Clarion University — Venango is the location of the testing center and must be selected as the recipient site.  All credits earned will appear on your Clarion University transcript regardless of your campus location.

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.

Administration fee $20 made payable to Clarion University
