The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national system of credit by examination. CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the country. The program, sponsored by the College Board, offers 34 exams that correspond to specific college courses.
Detailed test descriptions, sample questions, answers and other useful test preparation for candidates can be obtained online for a small fee on the CLEP website or by purchasing The Official Study Guide for the CLEP Examinations.
You will receive your personal unofficial score report immediately following your test. However, CLEP states that it can take up to three weeks for your designated school to receive the results.
