COLLEGE LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP)
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a group of standardized tests created and administered by College Board. These tests assess college-level knowledge in thirty-six subject areas and provide a mechanism for earning college credits without taking college courses. As a College of Professional Studies (CPS) student, you can gain credit by means of the CLEP Subject Examinations as long as:
- The credit is applicable to your degree program
- Credit will be given for the Subject Examinations listed below and NOT for the CLEP General Examinations
CLEP = TRANSFER CREDITS
Note: Villanova considers credits earned through the CLEP Subject Examinations transfer credits. Villanova will apply a maximum of 60 transfer credits, from any combination of appropriate sources toward your degree program.
When registering for any CLEP test, the numerical code for Villanova University is 2959; your score report will be sent directly to the College of Professional Studies. Your record will carry notation of credit for the courses specified, but will not carry a grade. Thus, CLEP Subject Examinations will not have an effect on your cumulative average.
