Credit by Examination


The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) provides tests for specific college/university courses identified by course number and title.   

1. Contact the Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) (615.547.1285) to schedule an appointment to take a CLEP test.  At the scheduled appointment the student will complete an application, pay the associated fee via credit card, and take the test.  Fees are set by CLEP and can be found on their website (www.clep.collegeboard.org) or by contacting the AEC.

2. Students are allowed one and a half hours to complete one computerized CLEP test at the AEC.

3. Upon completion of a CLEP test, the unofficial test results are immediately provided to the student. Official test results are provided to the Registrar’s Office (615.547.1228) by the CLEP testing association.

4. If a passing score is not earned on a CLEP test, the student may repeat the CLEP test within the guidelines of the College Level Examination Program (www.clep.collegeboard.org).
