The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national
program of credit-by-examination that offers students the opportunity
to earn college credit for achievement acquired through previous study,
personal experience, adult learning, and other sources. A list of the
available exams is at the CLEP
CLEP credits are available at no charge to students who
successfully complete coursework at the Modern States program. No fee is
charged for this program to the student. The Modern States program will
provide a student with voucher to pay for the CLEP exam and will
reimburse for the proctoring fee of the testing center.
It is important that students check with their
academic advisors on the types of courses and number of credits that
can be applied towards their program of study PRIOR to making an
appointment and completing the CLEP exam. Only students who have fewer
than 90 semester hours of college credit are eligible to take CLEP
exams. In the majority of cases, the University of Missouri only
accepts subject exams; general exams are usually NOT accepted. Mizzou
students should check the University
of Missouri-Columbia's policies. Students can retake the same CLEP
test after 6 months.
