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.
