The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of computer-based exams that allows individuals an opportunity to demonstrate prior learning and earn college credit for that knowledge. The exams are composed of multiple-choice questions and are approximately 90 minutes long. Official score reports are available immediately after the test administration, allowing individuals to select appropriate courses when scheduling classes.

Registration and Scheduling
Online registration is available. Seating is limited. Therefore, it is advisable to register for the test early. The test will be administered on Thursday afternoon, immediately following the conclusion of PREP activities.
ULM must receive official scores from CLEP in order to award course credit. Please select "University of Louisiana Monroe" as the score recipient at the time you take your exam.
CLEP Passing Score Policy
Universities awarding credit based on CLEP examinations have the right to set their own passing scores. The passing scores for CLEP examinations are listed with the exams. The University Registrar will enter the credit earned on the transcript for the ULM course equivalent as partial fulfillment of your degree requirements. Credit hours are posted to transcripts, but no letter grade is assigned. Therefore, the score will not be calculated in the overall grade point average. (NOTE: Credit earned by exam does not count toward hours earned for the Louisiana TOPS Program.)
