CLEP Testing

The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP® ) offers you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of the 34 CLEP exams. CLEP exams allow people who have acquired comprehensive subject knowledge through independent or prior study, on-the-job training, or cultural pursuits to show that they have the understanding of college-level material.  CLEP credits are awarded at almost 3,000 colleges and universities, including LCCC!
