College Level Examination Program - The College Board

  • All CLEP Examinations must be the SUBJECT exam
  • Many of these examinations have an optional Essay section, Alfred State students must take the essay section in order to be eligible to receive credit.

CLEP is a national program of credit-by-examination that offers students the opportunity to obtain recognition for college-level achievement. Personal reading, on-the-job experience, adult school or correspondence courses, or televised or taped courses may have prepared these students to earn college credit.

NOTE: CLEP test scores for COMP 1503 indicated on the CLEP transcript will count for 50% of the final grade. An essay exam will be administered by the English & Humanities Department and the results will count for the additional 50% of the final grade. The grade is prorated.
