CLEP Information & Eligibility

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers a unique opportunity to gain college credit for the knowledge you have acquired. The program includes 34 computer-based tests covering a variety of subjects. Formal study, private reading, on-the-job experience, non-credit courses, business training, television/radio courses, travel, and superior high school courses are just a few ways knowledge is acquired.


Any student (resident, Liberty University Online, high school, home school, and students from other institutions) is eligible to take a CLEP test. Resident Students who attend Liberty must take CLEP tests before their last semester on campus.

Candidates who score at the 75th percentile or above on either the SAT or the ACT are likely to meet the minimum scores as established by Liberty University. Other candidates who have done extensive reading or who have relative life experience may also profit from the CLEP exams.

Testing at Another Location

It is permissible to take a CLEP test at another location other than Liberty University.

  • For Liberty University only: No credit may be granted for a MATH test that is prerequisite material for a course that has already been completed with a grade of “C” or better.
  • There is no limit to the number of credits that students can earn from CLEP testing.

Students with Disabilities

Please notify the Supervisor of Testing Services at least two weeks in advance if you desire accommodations for a disability. All buildings at Liberty University are handicapped accessible. Tables and chairs are the standard seating in testing rooms. If your disability requires extra time or assistance to take the exam, you will be given a non-standard administration. To qualify for a non-standard administration, you must provide a current letter from a licensed physician, optometrist, or psychologist (including title, address, and telephone number) on his or her letterhead describing the nature of your disability as it applies to taking a multiple choice, standardized test, and specific accommodations you will require for testing. The Supervisor of Testing Services will contact the College Board on your behalf and discuss the appropriate arrangements. Only students with documented disabilities are eligible to receive special testing accommodations.
