How can you CLEP college when you're over 50 years old?
You actually have a great start by your experience in working and living life in general. You have a lot of work experience that will help you know a lot of the answers already.
You should be able to test out of as many as 30 credits towards your degree at most schools but that won't be an entire degree. Few schools will allow you to test out of an entire degree, and be skeptical of those that do. This is a way to get college done faster and cheaper.
Check with your school, or the school to intend to go to and see what their policies are regarding CLEP testing. You can also check out our New Student Center for step-by-step information and guidance.
