The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a CollegeBoard program that allows you to accelerate your education by skipping introductory college-level courses in subjects you have already mastered.
You can earn college credit by achieving a qualifying score on any of 34 exams. The time and money saved can be used toward early college completion or to pursue a second major or advanced degree.
The 90-minute exams are administered at over 1,400 test centers year-round across the country. See the College Board site for a list of test centers in Minnesota.
CLEP exams are accepted for credit by more than 2,900 colleges and universities — often, at no cost to you! Minnesota may reimburse CLEP test fees for Minnesota public and private high school students.
Talk to your advisor or counselor about the details of the CLEP program.
