What is CLEP?

CLEP is a series of examinations that allow individuals to earn college credit for what they know, regardless of where they learned it. CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the United States.

CLEP exams are all 90 minutes long and are now administered only on computer. Students receive an instant unofficial score report following completion of the exam, except for exams that require an essay. The exams are composed of multiple-choice questions. The Analyzing & interpreting Literature Exam consists of a 90-minute multiple-choice section and a 90-minute essay section.
