What is CLEP?

CLEP exams allow degree seekers with prior knowledge of introductory college topics the opportunity to take an exam demonstrating their mastery rather than taking the class itself. The overall purpose of CLEP exams is to reward existing knowledge and make it easier for students to earn college credit (From https://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/college-resource-center/clep-exam/)
