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.

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.
