​College-Level Examination Program


College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) examinations are based on undergraduate courses offered during the first two years of college study. They are developed by college instructors for the purpose of awarding college credit. Like end-of-course examinations, CLEP exams demand comprehensive subject knowledge. Both CLEP subject and general examinations yield credit at YVCC when satisfactory performance levels are reached.

Successfully completed CLEP examinations receive 'S' grades. Several YVCC degrees and certificates limit the total number of 'S' grades, so it is important to speak with an advisor about taking CLEP examinations. Students must successfully complete one quarter at YVCC before CLEP credits will be placed on their transcript.

The following credit will be granted to students entering YVCC who have submitted scores from the College Board Advanced Placement Examinations Program.

To take a CLEP exam, visit YVCC's Testing Services.
