What Is CLEP?

CLEP exams are offered by the College Board (the same organization that offers AP and SAT exams) and cost just $80 to take. They allow you to demonstrate mastery of a subject and cut up to two years off the length of your degree program. A passing score on a CLEP exam yields 3 or more credits that can be transferred to 2,900 colleges and universities.
