College Level Examination Program

Who should take the CLEP?
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)


Students may take the CLEP test and receive college credit for various courses; some language courses included. This allows the student to decrease the amount of time it might take to earn a degree. For a complete list of courses for which credit is given, as well as those which are accepted at Coastal Carolina University, see the online brochure.

Credit by examination may be awarded after the student obtains the required score on the appropriate CLEP Subject Examination. There is a fee for taking a CLEP Subject Examination; this fee is non-refundable. CLEP credit can only be posted after the Office of the Registrar has received the official score report from Educational Testing Service; credit cannot be transferred from another college/university transcript.  Students may take each test only once and must pass the exam to receive credit for courses. Tests are given by appointment during regular Academic Testing Center hours. This test is recommended for students with near native speaking ability.

Non-native English speaking students may not use the CLEP test for their native language. Information regarding specific CLEP Subject Examinations may be obtained by contacting the University's Academic Testing Center at 843-349-4004.  Students may not repeat CLEP examinations for CCU credit.
