College Level Examination Program (CLEP)


CLEP is a national testing program sponsored by the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB).

According to North Dakota University System policy, a minimum score of 50 is required to receive credit for CLEP subject examinations. If NDSU does not have an equivalent course, free elective credit may be awarded.

The following CLEP policies apply at NDSU:

  1. The examination should be taken prior to enrollment in the equivalent or more advanced college-level course.
  2. Scores from an examination may not be used to establish credit for a course previously taken and failed or for a course in which the student is currently enrolled.
  3. Six months must elapse before an examination may be repeated.
  4. Credit earned through CLEP is not residence credit and may not be used to satisfy residence-credit requirements for graduation.

CLEP Registration and Fees:

NDSU is a national testing center for students wishing to take CLEP examinations. CLEP examinations are computerized and administered as needed. To register for a CLEP examination, contact the NDSU Counseling Center, 212 Ceres Hall, 231-7671. The current fee for each of the Subject Examinations is $105.
