College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Clark College grants credit for prior learning for completion of the College Board's College Level Examination (CLEP).  This rigorous program allows students of a wide range of ages and backgrounds to demonstrate their mastery of college-level material in introductory subjects and earn college credit.  Credit will be granted for CLEP tests with a minimum score equivalent. Credits may count toward satisfying distribution requirements for any degree/certificate. Students must submit an official copy of CLEP scores to the Credential Evaluations Office. Upon evaluation of scores, the student will be notified.

Currently recognized CLEP examinations and their direct equivalencies are listed below. Students will be awarded five credits of general electives for each score report received where there is no exam or direct equivalency listed. Each general examination requires a score of 50 or higher; subject level exam scores may vary. Credit is posted with an “S” grade at the end of the quarter for which the score report was received, once a transcript record has been established. No credits will be awarded for an examination if the student has already earned credit in a duplicate course.
