What is CLEP?

CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the United States, with more than 2,900 colleges and universities awarding credit for satisfactory scores on CLEP exams. With CLEP, a student can earn college credit for what he or she already knows, on any of 34 CLEP examinations. A Bismarck State College student can earn up to 45 credits by achieving satisfactory scores on accepted CLEP exams. For additional information, visit the CLEP Exams Website.
