The University participates in the College Level Examination Program CLEP administered by the College Board. The CLEP is used to obtain recognition for college level learning. Depending on the results of your tests you may be granted academic credit and/or waive prerequisite requirements, which will allow you to begin your college education at an advanced or intermediate level, or verify requirements for certification, licensing, or promotion. Consult with your College Advisor to confirm the total semester hours accepted toward your degree. The CLEP exam is intended for people with clear strengths in the Spanish language.
