Earn college credit by testing your knowledge

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

CLEP offers 33 exams in five subject areas, covering material taught in courses that you may generally take in your first two years of college. CLEP is created and administered by College Board. These tests assess college-level knowledge in thirty-six subject areas that allow you to earn college credits without taking college courses.

DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST)

DSST Exams offer students a cost-effective, time-saving way to use knowledge acquired outside of the classroom (from personal research, on-the-job training, independent study, work or military field experience) to accomplish their educational goals.

Schedule an exam

DSST and CLEP exams are administered at the Mequon and Ann Arbor Campuses. CLEP exams can also be taken remotely and are administered through College Board. Eligible military members can take DSST exams remotely.
