Can a student who took Freshman comp take the English CLEP?

Can a student who took Freshman comp take the English CLEP?

To give you a complete answer, we'll have to clear some things up.

Freshman composition doesn't exist anymore. It is no longer offered as a test that you can take. English Composition and Freshman Composition were retired and replaced with College Composition and College Composition Modular.

So if you took the older tests, yes, you can take the newer tests as well.

The only issue is that you may have all the credit that you need in that subject. Some schools will only allow you to take so many tests in a certain area. Always check with your adviser before you start studying for a CLEP test.

What does CLEP stand for?

CLEP What does it stand for? It should stand for:


But it doesn't. It stands for:

College Level Examination Program

It is what it says it is - an advanced, college level testing program that shows you and your school that you already know the information covered in a college class so you should be allowed to skip it and still receive the college credit. It's a great idea and a great program!

How Spanish CLEP exams are scored

How are Spanish CLEP exams scored?

It's pretty straightforward. This CLEP test is entirely done by multiple choice. So you will key in your answers to the computer as you proceed with the test and like any test without an essay, you will receive your score print out at the end.

However, what makes this test different is that the test includes different parts, listening and reading.

There are two listening sections and one reading section.

For example, in one section you will hear a conversation in Spanish. You will then hear four responses/
answer choices, A, B, C, and D. After those four answer choices are spoken, you will have to enter the correct answer. You will only hear the answer once.

You have 90 minutes to complete the test of 120 questions. Each school sets their own score, but the ACE recommended scores are 50 and 63. If you score between 50-62 you will receive six credit hours.

You can find this and all of our 58 CLEP and DANTES study guides on our site.

How to CLEP college

How to CLEP college?

Well, that's a big question with a long complicated answer. We tell you the long version of how to CLEP college on our FAQ Page.

But the short answer is pretty easy. First, find out if your school accepts credit and if you need the type of credit that you can test out of. It doesn't make sense to study for the College Algebra CLEP if you only need Biology credit.

Choose your test and purchase your study guide - hopefully one of ours with a money back guarantee!


Take the test - when you've passed you'll have scored 3-6 college credits. That's a lot easier than sitting in a class all semester. Taking a CLEP test is a lot easier than you think. It just takes some time and determination. Once you pass your first test, you'll feel confident and want to take another and another. It's great to save so much time and money.

Can you test out of an entire degree? At an accredited school, that's unlikely. Some online schools will let you test out of 30 credit hours, but that seems to be on the higher end of the scale. Your local state college or community college may limit you to 15 credit hours of credit earned through testing. But that's still saving a semester or more in time and tuition.

How long does it take to be charged for taking a CLEP test?

How long does it take to be charged for taking a CLEP test?

You are charged a testing center fee (separately - usually $15) and a testing fee at the time of your test. You cannot take the test without first paying the fee.

Do you mean how long does it take to get the credit? The credit is posted to a CLEP transcript immediately. You will receive a CLEP score report at the end of the test which will have your score. Depending on your school's policy, you may be awarded credit instantly (if you take the test at your school) or they may want you to send for a CLEP transcript, which like all things in academia, takes a few weeks to get back and is sent directly to the school. If you need one last test for graduation, make sure you know in advance how this works so you will be sure to not have any problems or issues.

Is the College Algebra CLEP harder than the College Math CLEP?

Is the College Algebra CLEP harder than the College Math CLEP?

In our opinion, the College Mathematics CLEP is easier than the College Algebra CLEP.

The College Math CLEP seems to have items that are easier to understand for "non math" people. If you were a math person, you probably wouldn't be asking this question. :) When adults returning to school hear the words "graphic quadratic equations" chills run up their spine. Geometry (which is on the math test) seems easier to handle. However, we have all the CLEP math titles, including Precalculus and Calculus for those math people that need a brush up.

What college class does DANTES Here's To Your Health allow you to test out of?

What college class does DANTES Here's To Your Health allow you to test out of?

Well the short answer is, it depends.

What it depends on his how your school awards credit for tests. Some schools allow you to get "science" credit or "math" credit, accepting most things into broad categories. Other schools are more specific, such as Here's To Your Health counts for HTLH 2010, etc.

So first you need to do some digging online to find out the answer or call your academic adviser for help. Then, need to start studying! You can find the Here's To Your Health study guide on our site here.

How much time can be eliminated with CLEP?

How much time can be eliminated with CLEP?

Guessing that you are talking about how much time in class can you save with CLEP, here are some great statistics. To pass ONE 3 credit hour class you can save up to:

20 hours of class time = 1200 minutes


3-4 months MWF


Five weeks towards your degree (at UOP)


That's just for one class. Most students once they take their first CLEP test become addicted to saving time and money so they try to then "CLEP out" of as many credits and classes as possible. You can also take DANTES tests. These work the same way as a CLEP test. You take the test, you pass, you get college credit. If you need more information about how this works, visit our New Student Center for more information.
