College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program. More than 2,900 accredited institutions of higher education award credit for satisfactory scores on CLEP exams, which assess what you know.

CLEP exams can reduce the number of courses you need to graduate, saving hundreds of dollars in tuition
