The Advanced Placement Program, a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities, allows high school students to undertake college level academic learning courses and gives them the opportunity to show they have mastered the advanced material by taking AP exams. Students can receive credit, advanced placement, or both, from hundreds of colleges and universities that participate in the AP Program.
The heart of CLEP is a series of examinations, each 90 minutes long, that allow you to demonstrate your knowledge in a wide range of subjects. You are recognized and rewarded for what you know. CLEP can help you get the college credits needed to reach your goals more quickly. You can choose from five General Examinations and 30 Subject Examinations. CLEP is a great way to bypass introductory classes and save time and money getting your degree.
