recognizes that students may have acquired knowledge equivalent to that
taught in introductory college level courses through work experience,
reading, research, or other activities. By demonstrating knowledge
through CLEP, a student may qualify for college-level credit without
having to attend the course. Western Connecticut State University (WCSU)
follows the guidelines recommended by the American Council on Education
(ACE) for awarding students credit for CLEP. Test credit is applied
according to WCSU transfer credit policy at the time the scores are
received and are normally posted to the student transcript within three
weeks of the exam.
Each CLEP is a 90 minute computer-based multiple-choice exam. Advanced permission may be required for some CLEP examinations,
so be sure to check with your academic advisor before registering for a CLEP.
