ABOUT THE CLEP EXAMINATIONS
The CLEP Examination is a college-credit by examination, iBT (Internet Based Testing) program. The computer -based exams consist of multiple choice questions; the number of questions will vary for each examination. The exams are usually two (2) hours in length. Students can demonstrate their knowledge of course content and obtain college credits by successfully completing the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) at La Salle University.
Students who fail a course, either at La Salle or another university/college, cannot take a CLEP Examination for that same course. Students who have a grade “D” or better or a “P/F” (pass/fail) in a course taken either at La Salle or another university/college cannot take a CLEP Examination for that same course.
Effective October 17, 2014, students who fail a CLEP Examination must wait three months to retake the same CLEP Examination. Candidates who have tested prior to October 17, 2014 must still wait six months before retaking the same exam.
La Salle University is a “limited” testing center, which means that it is available only to enrolled La Salle students. La Salle offers 29 CLEP subject examinations. La Salle’s CLEP Testing Center is located on the Main Campus.
