What Are CLEP® Exams and Why SpeedyPrep?

The College Level Examination Program® (CLEP®) was started over 40 years ago by the College Board®.  CLEP® exam results are accepted by over 2,900 colleges and universities. The exams are administered at over 1,800 licensed testing centers worldwide.
33 CLEP Exams | Pass CLEP Exam
The College Board® currently offers CLEP® exams for 33 college subjects.  These exams cover general education courses most colleges require as part of any student’s degree plan.

Passing a CLEP® exam shows that you have a fundamental and working knowledge of a college-level subject. This becomes a part of your permanent college transcript. Therefore, you do not have to pay tuition for that class, buy textbooks, attend class, turn in assignments or take mid-terms and finals.

CLEP® exams can fit into the life of anyone pursuing a college degree, not just full-time students!  Military service people, homeschool students, and working adults all use CLEP® to streamline their route to a college degree, finding that it fits into their active lives.

You have to pass those CLEP® exams, however, to take advantage of the benefits they offer. If you take a CLEP® exam and fail it, there is a waiting period, usually three or six months before you can try again. If you are a military service member, your first exam will be paid for by the military, but if you have to try again, you will have to pay for it yourself.
