College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

If you pass the exam and you have not duplicated the credit elsewhere, the equivalent UNO course number and credit will be entered on your UNO record. If you do not pass, you will not be penalized and no entry will be made on your record. Since grades will not be recorded, CLEP will not raise or lower your grade point average.

UNO accepts only the Subject CLEP exams. A list of acceptable exams, minimum passing scores, and UNO equivalent courses follows. Check with the Office of Admissions for additional tests not listed. For more information about CLEP, visit the website.

CLEP exams are held at UNO. Each exam costs $110. There are two separate transactions:$80 payable to CLEP and $30 payable to UNO Testing Services. You may contact UNO Testing Services at (504) 280-TEST (8378) for full details. A CLEP Handbook, which provides sample questions and complete descriptions of all exams, is available in your local bookstore or can be ordered by calling 1-800-323-7155      .
