UCA’s CLEP Policy

UCA offers college credit for many CLEP tests.  Information about test subjects and score requirements can be found in Section 8 of UCA’s 2016-2017 Undergraduate Bulletin, located at https://uca.edu/ubulletin/general-policies-information/registration-and-credit/. It reads, in part:

“The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) allows a student to receive university credit and/or satisfy university requirements. The university permits a student to take either the general examinations or specific subject examinations to earn college credit for a maximum of thirty hours of UCA Core courses. No student may use test scores in lieu of courses in the major or minor, except in instances where UCA Core requirements and major or minor requirements overlap.

CLEP credit may be awarded to those students who have met the minimum score requirement set by the university, have not already satisfied the UCA Core requirement, and have not begun the course for which credit is sought. All examinations must be taken before the end of the semester in which a student is enrolled for the 75th hour.

When a student has satisfactorily completed the examination and has earned 12 hours in residence at the university, credit will be recorded and designated CLEP on the student’s permanent record. However, the result of CLEP examinations will not be used in computing a student’s grade point average. Thirty semester hours is the maximum examination credit allowed. To earn credit in writing, the examination must be taken before the student begins the course(s) for which credit is sought. Credit for successful completion of these examinations is recorded at the end of the term in which the scores are received. Students should apply directly to the test center where the test is to be taken. A transcript of scores must be sent to the Office of the Registrar.”
