CLEP and Dantes Testing

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College-Level Examination Program gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of 34 examinations. Exam descriptions and information are available at: 
CollegeBoard CLEP

A score of at least 50 is required to receive credit.  There are no exceptions!  Some tests (such as languages) require higher scores.

 

Students, who wish to take the College Composition exam, must also take the essay to fulfill the credit requirement. Point Park University no longer accepts test scores for College Composition Modular to fulfill English 150 and 151.

 

The CLEP and DANTES tests for CMPS 295 are not equivalent to CMPS 110 and CMPS 111. CMPS 295 can not be substituted for CMPS 110 and CMPS 111.
