CLEP examinations cover material taught in courses encountered during the first two years of college. Most CLEP exams are designed to correspond to one-semester courses, although some correspond to full-year or two-year courses. Unless stated otherwise in the CLEP online description, an examination is intended to cover material in a one-semester course.
Colleges usually grant the same amount of credit for a satisfactory score on the CLEP
examination as they grant to students successfully completing that course.
Southern Polytechnic State University’s Continuing Education Center is an open CLEP Testing Center. All CLEP examinations are administered, by appointment only, Monday thru Friday. Please contact the Testing Center at 678-915-3982 at least one week in advance of a proposed testing date.
CLEP exams are given year round. All CLEP examinations are computer-delivered and have a 90-minute time limit.
