Consider taking a CLEP exam

Students can earn credit for what they already know by getting qualifying scores on any of the 33 examinations the CLEP program offers.

However, colleges choose whether to grant credit toward a degree; not all institutions have the same CLEP policy. Please consult with your institution's academic advising to find out their guidelines.
