CLEP is a national program of credit by examination that allows a person to obtain recognition for college-level achievement. In the of Fall of 2000 MGCCC was approved as a limited CLEP testing site. As such, MGCCC administers CLEP exams to students who are enrolled at MGCCC.
CLEP offers two types of tests: general examinations and subject examinations. General exams measure familiarity with material covered in courses taken during the first two years of college to meet general education requirements. They include English composition, humanities, college mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, and history. Subject exams measure knowledge usually acquired in specific college courses and are used to grant credit for these courses. The CLEP exams for which MGCCC accepts credit are listed in the catalog along with the required testing scores.
Please contact one of the campus Assessment Centers to schedule a CLEP examination.
