College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Students who believe that they already possess the knowledge and/or skills taught in certain courses or programs offered by the college may obtain credit for one or more courses by successful taking of an examination.  The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national testing program administered by the Educational Testing Service.  Clarendon College is a testing center for CLEP. Clarendon College awards credit for students who successfully complete one or more CLEP subject- examinations; however, Clarendon College does not grant credit on the basis of the College Board CLEP General Examination Scores.  Successful performance on each CLEP Subject Examination is set by Clarendon College after considering the College Board's score recommendation.

Course Challenge Examinations

Students are eligible to apply for this examination if they earned predominately "A" grades in the subject in high school, scored exceptionally high on a nationally recognized test and/or if they can demonstrate to the division director significant and relevant experience in the subject area and a CLEP exam is not available in the course.  Final approval for a Course Challenge Exam must be obtained through the Vice President of Instruction.

Once approval to test is obtained, the student is required to pay a fee. The testing fee is payable in   advance, and is non-refundable, regardless of the grade earned on the test. A grade of "B" (85) or better must be earned on the exam in order to receive credit for the course.  The course number, course title, and the number of semester credit hours earned will be recorded on the transcript.  No grade points are earned.  Credit may not be used to meet residency requirements.  Credit will not be posted until the student has completed 12 semester hours at Clarendon College.

 

Evaluated Credit (Evaluation of Credentials)

Students may earn credit by an evaluation of various credentials, including by not limited to:

1. State or national board exams/certifications, (LVN, R.N., Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, etc.);
2. Non-traditional transcripts (hospital schools, cosmetology, etc.);
3. Nationally recognized tests or certifications;
4. Formal military training.

Students wishing to apply for Credit by Experience must fill out, attach necessary documentation and submit the Credit By Experience Application to the Registrar's Office. If at the conclusion of the process credit is awarded the course number, the course title, and the number of semester hours of credit will be recorded on the transcript.  No grade points are earned; credit may not be used to meet residency requirements.
