College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

USF allows students to receive up to 45 semester hours of credit towards the baccalaureate degree upon successful completion of General and Subject College Level Examination Program (CLEP), IB, and DANTES examinations. Performance levels necessary to achieve credit have been established at a common level for all universities and community colleges in the State system. Credit earned through one examination program may not be duplicated by another examination or course. The following limitations should be recognized:

  1. CLEP credit will not satisfy USFís residency requirement;
  2. Credit for the General Natural Science examination will be granted for non-majors only.

Certain General and Subject CLEP Examinations noted in the table below may apply to the General Education Liberal Arts Requirements. Some programs do not award credit toward the degree for certain CLEP examinations, and certain graduate or professional schools such as law, medicine and engineering may not grant equal recognition to students with extensive examination credits. An academic advisor should be consulted to ascertain the applicability of a specific CLEP examination toward a studentís degree requirements and the advisability of taking the examinations in a studentís specific situation.

Descriptions of the examination content and other information are available from Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey or in the Office of Evaluation & Testing (SVC 2054).

The CLEP General and Subject Examinations are administered on a daily basis on the Tampa Campus. Testing schedules are available in the Office of Evaluation & Testing (SVC 2054). Prior registration is required.

For information regarding CLEP examinations, please go to the Evaluation and Testing web site http://www.usf.edu/ugrads/eandt/clep.htm.
