Many students gain college-level knowledge outside the classroom. The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate knowledge for possible college credit. Official CLEP transcripts must be submitted to Madison College for evaluation. CLEP credits will only be transferred if you are admitted to a program at Madison College. Visit the College Board website for registration information and test location.

The awarding of CLEP credit varies by institution. If you intend to transfer to another college or university after Madison College, make sure to check with that institution regarding their CLEP policies.
