Sanford Community Adult Education now a CLEP testing site

Sanford Community Adult Education is proud to announce we are now a CLEP testing site!

CLEP (the College-Level Examination Program®) offers 34 exams that cover intro-level college course material. With a passing score on one CLEP exam, you could earn three or more college credits at more than 2,900 U.S. colleges and universities.

CLEP was created to help individuals with prior knowledge in a college course subject

earn their degree efficiently and inexpensively. That prior learning could have taken

place through advanced high school courses, independent reading and study, online

courseware or textbooks, noncredit courses, or on-the-job training. 

The exams take about 90-120 minutes to complete, depending on the exam subject.

Students receive their CLEP exam scores immediately after completing the exam

(except for College Composition and Spanish with Writing). More than 2,900 U.S.

colleges and universities grant credit for CLEP.

Anyone interested in earning college credit and saving time and money can take a

CLEP exam. CLEP launched in 1967 as a way for adult students and military service

members to earn degrees inexpensively while also being able to meet work and family


Today, CLEP benefits everyone including high school students, college students, adult

learners, service members and veterans, and professionals seeking continuing

education credits.

Employers who offer tuition reimbursement can really get more bang for their buck with

CLEP testing! Each exam costs $89 payable online to College Board and SCAE has a $30 administrative fee due on the day of the exam.
