CLEP offers exams for college credit in five subject areas, covering material taught in courses that are generally taken in the first two years of college. The exams test the mastery of college-level material acquired in a variety of ways — through general academic instructions, significant independent study or extracurricular work. CLEP exam-takers include adults just entering or returning to school, military service members and traditional college students.
Exams are computer based and contain mainly multiple-choice questions. For more information see the Information for Candidates booklet.
