College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a nation-wide credit-by-examination program that offers students an opportunity to obtain recognition for college-level achievement.
Maria College grants credit for the Excelsior College Proficiency Examinations and the College Level Examination Programs (CLEP), when these examinations cover material comparable to that given in courses at the College in areas that can be applied toward the associate degree. Proficiency credits are treated as transfer credits and must be completed the semester prior to when a course is required. If credit has been granted through examination prior to application to Maria, an official transcript must be sent to the Registrar.
