College Level Examination Program

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national program of credit-by-examination sponsored by the College Entrance Examination Board. Intensive reading, on-the-job experience, adult high school, correspondence courses and television or taped courses may have prepared you to earn college credit.

Each college or university determines which CLEP tests it will accept for credit and the amount of credit it will award.  If you want to take tests for credit, first contact the college you wish to attend to inquire about its policy on CLEP scores and other admission requirements. Next, to schedule your exam through the University of Iowa Distance and Continuing Education Test Center, call 319-384-4800 or email
