CLEP - College Level Examination Program
Students enrolled at Florida Southern College may earn college credit by attempting the CLEP in any given subject area and reaching the credit-granting scores acceptable by the College. (See the chart below for individually accepted test scores.) With few exceptions, the test scores are equated with specific courses in Florida Southern’s current Catalog. These are also listed on the chart. Currently enrolled students attempting to earn CLEP credit should first determine their eligibility for credit by completing this form and filing it with the Registrar’s Office. Transfer students should do the same. High school students should contact the Office of Admission to determine their eligibility.
Each test requires approximately 90 minutes. All CLEP results are evaluated by the Registrar’s Office and recorded as transfer credit on the student’s transcript; therefore, CLEP credit may not be earned during the final 31 hours. CLEP credits earned apply toward degree requirements, but do not affect the student’s grade point average. A student may earn a total of 60 semester hours of credit by examination. Ordinarily, credit by examination will not be awarded in any area in which comparable college course work or more advanced work has been attempted, (including "Withdrawals). The cost of each CLEP test includes the following: Testing Fee - $89.00 per test to CLEP and Administrative Fee - $15.00 (cash or check) to Florida Southern College.
