CLEP offers examinations in thirty-four different subject areas. Each exam is ninety minutes in length.
Contact the admissions office of the college or university that you are interested in attending. They can tell you if they are among the 2,900 institutions that accept CLEP examinations for credit or advanced standing, as well as which examinations they accept, the scores they require, and the number of credit hours that they grant for each examination that you pass successfully.
