The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is designed to assist students in reaching their academic goals by gaining college credit for knowledge acquired in previous non-credit studies, or outside a traditional classroom setting. CLEP exams are published and scored by the College Board. For further information on the CLEP program, visit the College Board's website.
Many colleges and universities -- including UIC -- grant credit for performance on CLEP exams in one or more subject areas. Policies on the granting of CLEP credit are set by the individual college or university, and vary widely from one institution to another. Students already enrolled at a college or university should begin, in most cases, by consulting with an academic advisor to find out which, if any, CLEP exams they may be eligible to take. Students not yet enrolled should consult with admissions officials at the school(s) to which they are considering applying for admission.
