CLEP Credit Equivalencies

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a collection of standardized tests that allow students to receive college credit for what they already know. Demonstrated proficiency within specific disciplines through examination will allow students to bypass elective coursework.

Transferable Credits

KSC accepts credit for many CLEP exams, provided a minimum qualifying score is met or exceeded. See the table below for more details.
