COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP) OF THE
COLLEGE ENTRANCE EXAMINATION BOARD
(Senate Policy 42-94)
A student may be awarded credit based on performance on a CLEP exam taken before or after admission depending on the score earned on the examination and other factors, as indicated in the Undergraduate Degree Programs Bulletin. Up-to-date information on CLEP credit awards is available from Undergraduate Admissions.
IMPACT ON A STUDENT'S PENN STATE RECORD
A student must be in degree status or have completed at least one course of 3 credits or more at Penn State before CLEP credit will be recorded on his/her transcript.
When CLEP credit is recorded on the student's transcript, a grade is not recorded, and the student's grade-point average is not affected. Credits earned are included in the total credits earned (see Cumulative Credits/Total Credits).
The University may make changes in policies, procedures, educational offerings, and requirements at any time. Please consult a Penn State academic adviser for more detailed information.
