What Is 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. You can earn credit for knowledge you've acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits or internships.

Photo IDs are required for all testing.

Important Note to Testers

Although we administer the CLEP tests, College of the Mainland does not accept/award credit for all tests. It is the tester's responsibility to ensure that the school the scores will be sent to awards credit for that particular CLEP test.
