College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The University of Minnesota, Crookston (UMC) offers the opportunity to submit the results of CLEP for credit in most of the Subject Examinations. CLEP Subject Examinations currently accepted by UMC for transfer credits are listed below with the minimum acceptable standard score. Credit earned through CLEP Subject Exams may be used to fulfill liberal education requirements, to fulfill specific course requirements, or used as elective credits. UMC does not grant credit for the General Exams.
The following guidelines have been established for utilization of the Subject Examinations:
- A CLEP Subject Examination may not be taken to establish credit for a course in which a student has earned credit in a higher-level sequential course.
- A student with previously earned credit in one course of a two-semester course sequence must petition the Academic Standards and Policy Committee (AS&P Committee) for approval before taking a CLEP Subject Examination to receive credit for the second course in the sequence.
- A Subject Examination may be repeated no sooner than six months after the date of the last testing. Students should submit a petition to the AS&P Committee for permission to repeat an examination.
- A Subject Examination may not be used to establish credit in a subject that the student has previously failed.
- CLEP credits awarded at another institution are not automatically accepted by UMC. The student must submit an original transcript of CLEP scores for evaluation. All scores are evaluated according to UMC policy.
