• CLEP Tests

    What is CLEP?

    CLEP is an examination program for students who feel confident that they can successfully take a comprehensive exam instead of a course, due to proficiency in that area. A maximum of 32 credit hours can be arranged through CLEP by means of exams. Refer to the lists of tests that are acceptable for college credit at L&C College.

    You must schedule an appointment to take a CLEP Test. L&C administers CLEP Tests through the Haskell Testing Center. Call (618) 468-5232 to schedule an appointment.
