The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national program that allows students to obtain academic credit for college-level achievement. Additional information may be obtained through the College Board, (609) 771-7300, or www.collegeboard.com.
Georgia College awards credit for most CLEP examinations. Equivalencies are reviewed and posted each year on the GC website; published equivalencies are subject to change as a result of changes in CLEP exam content and Georgia College course or curriculum changes.
To receive credit for CLEP, a student must obtain the minimum credit-earning score on a CLEP exam (usually a 50, although some disciplines require higher scores), and send an original College Grade Report directly from the College Board to Georgia College (CEEB 5252). This request may be made when students register for the exam.
A "K" grade will be awarded for CLEP credit. This grade will not affect the student's grade point average but will count toward total hours and will fulfill degree requirements.
