College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a program of credit by examination sponsored by the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB). This program provides interested individuals an opportunity to obtain recognition for college level achievement on the basis of examination performance.  Stillman College accepts both the CLEP General Examination and the CLEP subject-area examination. CLEP credits are treated as undergraduate transfer credits and are not considered in the calculation of the student’s cumulative average; however, the credits may be used to fulfill degree requirements at Stillman College. A maximum of 30 semester hours may be earned through the CLEP General Examination.  Stillman College will award six (6) semester hours of credit to each test in the battery for 90-minute General Examinations according to the following scale:

English Composition (with essay given at SC) 530-610
Mathematics 421-500
Humanities 421-500
Natural Sciences 421-500
Social Sciences and History 421-500

The College will award credit for any of the CLEP subject-area examinations that parallel existing general education courses offered by the College, and the amount of credit awarded will be based on the equivalency of areas covered by the examination.  Minimum scores for each test and the number of credit hours awarded will be based on the recommendations of the American Council on Education regarding CLEP. (The recommendations will be on file in the offices of the Registrar and Provost).

A student may not receive credit for both the Subject Examination and its equivalent, either in another examination or in a course taken for credit.
