• Save money and shorten the time it takes to get your college degree by taking CLEP exams.

    The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford cooperates with the National College Level Examination Program (CLEP).  The CLEP provides students of any age with the opportunity to demonstrate college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. 

    Scores required for the award of credit from CLEP examinations have been set by the College faculty. Students are eligible for CLEP credit only if CLEP examinations are taken prior to the completion of 30 college credits, including transfer credits. 

    Pitt-Bradford's policy of credit earned through CLEP examinations are as follows:

    • The credit must be useful in a student’s program of study.
    • Credit will not be granted if a student has completed an equivalent or more advanced course in the discipline.
    • Duplicate credit in the same subject is not awarded in any case.
    • A student who has earned CLEP credit at other institutions must have their test scores reevaluated to determine eligibility for credit at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
    • Credit is granted, but grades and quality points are not assigned or recorded.

    Credit Maximum

    A combined total of 60 credits may be awarded through CLEP, AP, military courses, and challenge examinations administered by academic department within Pitt-Bradford.

    More information about CLEP examinations is available in the Continuing Education Office, located in Marilyn Horne Hall or by calling (814) 362-5078.
