Homeschool students can take advantage of CLEP - anyone, any age can take a CLEP test.
What is CLEP and how does it work? A CLEP is a subject exam that anyone can take. If you pass the test, you will receive college credit on a CLEP transcript. That college transcript is good at over 2900 colleges and universities.
Benefits for homeschooled students taking CLEP test:
*built in curriculum – you are guided with an outline of what to study, recommended books, or you can use a CLEP study guide.
*builds confidence – when you take a CLEP test and you pass, you feel incredible. Not only did you just add three to six college credits to your transcript, you’ve proved to yourself and the world that you know the material. It is a great accomplishment.
*saves money on tuition – the $80 spent to take a CLEP test is very little compared to the cost you would spend on books and tuition for the comparable class.
*saves time – you could enter college as a sophomore by shaving off semesters off your time in school.
For all the students who haven’t felt challenged at school or who want to prove that they are learning at a college level, CLEP testing is for you.
CLEP tests are administered by the College Board, the same people that offer the SAT test. They are accredited and are accepted at more than 2900 colleges and universities.
Preparing for an AP test? Take the CLEP test in the same or similar subject as a primer, or simply as a way to gain more elective credit. You don’t have to wait for a once a year test date like with the SAT. You can take the CLEP test by simply making an appointment at an open testing center – most available Monday through Friday every week.
And that’s not all…if there isn’t a CLEP test you are interested in taking, you can take a DSST test. There are more dozens more subjects that DSST offers, with the same benefits of CLEP – you pass the test and you get college credit.
