CLEP Exams

Postby popamode72 » Fri Jan 09, 2015 8:20 am

Has anyone here ever taken one of these? I'm thinking about taking one for marketing since I'm doing another 13 credit hour semester and like last year, doing another summer semester. The exams start next month and in March and I just wanna be completely sure that my college will accept credit from passing one of those.

My schedule this semester initially was going to be 16 credit hours and I'd be getting half of my minor out of the way and I'm still really thinking about whether I should scale it back up or not, especially given that I'm taking another accounting course and a science course this semester complete with its own separate lab time and all.

There was a time last year where I tried doing a similar courseload and turned out to be quite a pain for me to keep up with, especially with two of the classes being some of the harder ones that I've taken that I ended up withdrawing from them so I don't wanna make that mistake again. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have not but my brother has. He CLEPed out of the history courses for his basics and helped him by not having to deal with the history courses. You can always go on to make sure the CLEP is accepted. Also, you can talk to your adviser about possible options. All depends on what you're taking and if you think you have time to study for it!!

Best of luck!!

Who works in advising and counseling at a college?

I do!

To answer your question, look on your university website and search CLEP. It will show you which CLEP tests are for credit. For example, the college I work for only lets students CLEP out of English and foreign languages. You also have to consider if you are going to stay at that school to graduate or transfer to a different school. You would need to check with the other school too if you are considering transfer. The tests are provided by College Board, but usually are administered at the testing center at your school. Going thru your school's website, you can see what CLEPs are offered, how to register, and pay.

Let me say though, CLEPing out is no joke! You have to know your stuff, especially the higher the course levels are.
Good Luck!
