UCA offers college credit for many CLEP tests.  Information about test subjects and score requirements can be found in Section 8 of UCA’s Undergraduate Bulletin, located at It reads, in part:

  • Students may take certain CLEP 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.
  • 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.
  • CLEP results will not be used in computing a student’s grade point average.
  • All examinations must be taken before the end of the semester in which a student is enrolled for the 75th hour.
  • A transcript of scores must be sent to the Office of the Registrar.
