College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Students enrolled at the College may earn full credit for certain courses by achieving acceptable scores on the College Level Examination Program tests. With a few exceptions, adequate test scores will match and substitute for specific courses in the current catalog. CLEP Tests are computer-based and individually administered by the Testing Center. If credit is earned, the results are recorded by course, course number, and semester hours earned. A grade of K is awarded for successful CLEP exams in which students earn the minimum score stated below. Students interested in learning more about CLEP can visit https://www.abac.edu/academics/academic-support/testing/#College-Level-Examination-Program-CLEP-. Official College Board transcripts with the CLEP score(s) will be required for any CLEP credit to be awarded.
