Save Time. Save Money. Take CLEP.

The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of 34 examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you've acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.

How CLEP​ Helps You

Save time. Depending on your college's CLEP policy, a satisfactory score on a CLEP exam can earn you from 3 to 12 college credits.

  • Save money. The cost of a CLEP exam is $115 (The Fee is comprised of a $30 administration fee charged by Alabama A&M University and a $85 testing fee), a fraction of the tuition and fees for the corresponding course.
  • Make college more interesting. Skip general introductory courses and move on to more advanced classes, or explore new and challenging academic areas.
  • Graduate on time. CLEP can help you to the finish line if you're a few credits shy of graduation.
  • Satisfy a proficiency requirement. Demonstrate your ability in college math or a foreign language.
