A college degree brings many benefits—greater income, more career options, and financial security are tangible benefits.

The hard work, discipline, and commitment learned while earning a degree can apply to all areas of one’s life.

CLEP exams award college credit for general education courses required by colleges and universities. When compared to taking an on-campus, semester-long class, a successful CLEP exam saves thousands of dollars and months of time.
The average cost of a CLEP exam is $107 ($87 + testing center charges) That’s less than the average textbook would cost for a college course, much less the tuition for it! A CLEP exam is 90 minutes long. Compare that to hours in class, studying, writing papers and taking exams.
CLEP exams can be taken by anyone of any age. The results can be held for 20 years by the College Board to be sent to the school of your choice.
High school students, working adults, military service personnel, and ‘regular’ college students can all take advantage of CLEP for college credit.
