CLEP

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) provides the learner the opportunity to demonstrate college-level learning by taking nationally standardized examinations that assess the knowledge and skills taught in college-level courses. More than 30 CLEP tests are available and administered regularly at local sites. Application forms and a study guide with sample tests are available at www.collegeboard.com.

All CLEP tests are administered by computer at a testing site. If you would like to take a CLEP exam, you should request that official CLEP score reports be sent to the University of Saint Francis, Institution Code Number 1693. Your personal, unofficial test results will be available to you immediately after taking the test. If the score is acceptable, the appropriate college credit will be awarded. For more information about CLEP tests, visit www.collegeboard.com. Tests are administered at institutions in the Fort Wayne area but not at USF.
