To receive credit, students must achieve the minimum scaled score recommended by the American Council of Education (ACE). Students need to know the CLEP policy of the school from which they wish to graduate.

Services are available for students who need to make-up an instructor's exam due to illness or personal conflicts. Faculty members complete an 'Instruction for Exam Administration' form available in either the Testing Center, their department office, or via the Internet.
Tests are administered according to the faculty instructions.
Due to space and staff limitations, it is not possible to accommodate entire classes for testing or large groups of students who need to retest. Faculty must co-ordinate with their department office for a substitute if necessary. Completed faculty exams are picked up from the Testing Center by the instructor for grading. We are unable to accept faxed or emailed exams from faculty.
