(CLEP) College Level Examination Program

A student may attempt to earn college credit in some areas by examination. The credit-by-examination is an option for those who have a strong academic record both in high school and/or college.

The minimum score recommended by the American Council on Education is used as a guideline for exam acceptance. While the credits count toward graduation, the score is not used in the calculation of a grade point average. Credit granted does not apply toward fulfillment of MCC's residency requirement for graduation.

CLEP Examinations

Each examination covers material taught in an undergraduate course with a similar title at most colleges and universities. A college usually grants the same amount of credit to students earning satisfactory scores on the CLEP examination as it grants to students who successfully complete that course.

For consideration of college credit, students need to have an official exam score report mailed to:
Metropolitan Community College
Attn: Records
P.O. Box 3777
Omaha, NE 68103-0777

NOTE: MCC does not administer CLEP examinations.
