College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national credit-by-examination program which gives high school and college bound students of a wide range of ages the opportunity to earn college credit for what they already know, regardless of how that knowledge was acquired

Currently, CLEP testing is not available through KCC, but KCC does accept certain CLEP exams as long as scores meet minimum requirements. Information on CLEP exams, testing sites, etc., can be found by going to the College Board website's CLEP information page. Overall, KCC accepts limited credit hours by exam so please check with the Office of Admissions and Registration before taking multiple CLEP exams. Also, students must have their scores mailed from CLEP directly to KCC before credit can be evaluated and awarded. KCC accepts the following exams for credit:
