College Level Examination Program

Through College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), students may earn college credit for knowledge acquired outside the classroom.

The Office of the Registrar processes CLEP scores for individuals who are admitted or currently enrolled as degree-seeking students at CNU. Credit for qualifying CLEP scores is recorded on the student’s permanent record (transcript) as transfer credit.

Prior to registering through the College Board’s testing center to take a CLEP exam, the student should thoroughly review the CNU CLEP Guide.

A list of the limited number of exams accepted for credit is included in the guide. The student must obtain prior approval to take the CLEP exam for CNU credit by filling out the form.

After obtaining prior approval and completing the exam, the student should present a copy of the official CLEP score report from the College Board to the Office of the Registrar. Only the credit and the course will appear on the student’s academic transcript.
