Developed by the College Board, CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program for over 40 years, available at more than 2,900 colleges and universities. CLEP helps you receive college credit for what you already know, for a fraction of the cost of a college course. Amarillo College offers all 33 CLEP exams and awards credit for 33 classes! CLEP exams are computer based and offered year-round.
CLEP exams are funded by the U.S. government through the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) for many military personnel. To see if you qualify, please visit clep.collegeboard.com/military. Veterans may be eligible for reimbursement for CLEP exams using the GI Bill®. For more information on Veteran testing, please visit clep.collegeboard.org/military/veterans.
Each CLEP exam is 90 minutes long compared to 16 weeks in a classroom!
The total cost of a CLEP exam is $80* and can earn you up to 14 credit hours from one test! An average 3 hour class at Amarillo College is $250 plus the cost of books!
As of August 1st, 2015, students currently enrolled at Amarillo College will not be required to pay the additional testing fee. That means a CLEP exam will only cost AC students $80!
Students testing for other colleges or universities will be charged an additional $30 proctor fee.
