The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP®) is a series of examinations in 35 introductory college subjects that allow individuals to earn college credit for what they already know regardless of how that knowledge was acquired — through advanced course work, independent study, work experience, professional development, or extracurricular activities. Lamar University awards credit for successful scores on CLEP® exams.
CLEP® exams are 90 minutes long and are administered on computer. Students receive instant score reports following completion of the exam with the exception of the College Composition.
