College-Level Examination Program (CLEP®) Testing
You can take the CLEP® exam at the Central Piedmont Testing Center if you plan to enroll at Central Piedmont or if you plan to enroll at a different school.
The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP®) is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the United States, with more than 2,900 colleges and universities awarding credit for satisfactory scores on CLEP® exams. Since 1967, four million people — adults returning to college, graduating high school seniors, and enrolled college students — have earned college credit through CLEP®. Earn college credit for what you already know by getting qualifying scores on any of the 34 CLEP® examinations.
All exams are 90 minutes in length and are composed of multiple-choice questions, with the exception of the College Composition exam (120 minutes and two essays). These exams require college-level knowledge and critical thinking ability. You must prepare for your exam(s) in order to do well.
