Shorten your path to a college degree by CLEP Testing! The College-Level Examination Program or CLEP provides students of any age with the opportunity to demonstrate college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. There are 2,900 colleges that grant credit and/or advanced standing for CLEP exams. Please check with an advisor or counselor prior to taking any CLEP Exam, or refer to the Austin Community College Catalog Page to insure credit can be awarded. Non ACC students need to check with an advisor or counselor at the college they plan to attend to ensure credit can be awarded. This testing center cannot advise or counsel students about CLEP scores and the credit that will be awarded.
