CLEP

CLEP is a series of examinations that allow individuals to earn college credit for what they know, regardless of where they learned it.

Crowder College CLEP exams are 90 minutes long, administered on computer and students receive their score as soon as they complete the exam. However, College Composition with Essay will be 120 minutes long and will be sent to CLEP for grading and will take three to four weeks to be scored.  We proctor all CLEP examinations for other Colleges and Universities as well, except exams which require a hand-written component.
