CLEP (College-Level Examination Program)

CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program in the United States, helping students of all ages earn college degrees faster by getting credit for what they already know. While IU South Bend does not administer CLEP exams on campus, we do offer credit and/or advanced placement for several CLEP subject exams.

The following table lists the CLEP subject exams recognized by IU South Bend. Before you register for a CLEP exam, talk to your academic advisor to determine how the credits will apply toward your program of study.

IU South Bend does not currently administer the CLEP exam. However, you can take CLEP exams at any CLEP Center and have your scores sent to IU South Bend. For information on CLEP testing centers nationwide, visit the College Board Web site. Local test centers are listed at the bottom of this page.
