College Level Examination Program (CLEP)


The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a service of the College Entrance Examination Board. The CLEP test affords students and prospective students the opportunity to demonstrate their academic proficiency at the freshman-sophomore college level. The test battery includes several general study areas and numerous specific subject matter fields. Students do not have to pay tuition for the credits granted. At Glen Oaks Community College, a maximum of forty-seven (47) semester hours of credit may be applied toward an associate degree through the CLEP program. Transfer of CLEP credits is dependent on the policy in effect at the transferring college or university. Evaluation of credits will be based on CLEP recommendations, transfer college, and appropriate to degree.
