College Level Examination Program
Students may earn credit by demonstrating competency in a broad subject area or a specific course through the College Board for College-Level Subject Exams (CLEP). Credit is awarded according to the following guidelines:
- WVC is not a testing site for CLEP and official scores must be submitted for evaluation.
- There is no credit or GPA requirements before any credit can be awarded.
- Students must achieve a score in the 50th percentile or higher to receive ‘P’ credit.
- A maximum award of 10 CLEP credits can be earned in a distribution area (maximum of 5 credits in world languages). No more than 5 CLEP credits can be used to meet the writing skills requirement for a degree. CLEP credit will not fulfill the writing requirement for advanced English composition.
- CLEP credit is not allowed if credit has been received for a more advanced class.
- CLEP credit receives a “P” grade, will not affect the GPA and will not apply to WVC residency requirements.
- PLA credit is limited to a maximum of 30 credits required for WVC degrees or certificates.
- Additional credit may be considered for the technical degrees.
There is no fee for this evaluation.
