College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

CLEP allows students to earn credit toward graduation by attaining Tech’s qualifying score on either the general and/or subject examinations. A student may acquire a maximum of 30 hours of college credit through CLEP. Credit earned through CLEP may satisfy general education requirements; however, to be awarded credit students must complete with passing grades one regular semester of work at Tech. No more than one subject examination may be taken in a particular departmental area, and students must have prior approval from the department in which they are majoring to count the hours toward graduation.

It is recommended that an ACT sub-score of 24 or above or an SAT sub-score of 500 or above be used as a guideline for attempting to earn credit through CLEP. Following are the CLEP examinations that Tech will accept, the corresponding qualifying score required, and credit awarded. This is a computer based 90 minute timed test.
