The CLEP test is offered by appointment. These exams are computer based tests. If you would like to receive credit for college level classes without actually taking the course you may do so by attaining acceptable scores on the subject area exams. You must register in advance to take the exam by coming to University Advising Services in The Commons on the 2nd floor or calling 256-765-4773.

CLEP Subject Examination scores must be submitted to the Office of Admissions on the official transcript form directly from the College Entrance Examination Board.

Acceptable minimum scores are subject to change according to norming revisions by CEEB-CLEP.

Failure to make an acceptable minimum score requires that the student wait six months before repeating the examination.
