CLEP Credit


Through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Rend Lake College provides a means for academically talented students to demonstrate mastery of certain courses or subject areas. College credit is given for general and subject examinations taken if a score of 50 or higher is achieved. CLEP rules are subject to modifications as the College departments change requirements and as the tests themselves are revised. Since each College determines its own transfer policies, there is no guarantee that credit granted by Rend Lake College for CLEP will be accepted at another school. CLEP tests may be taken on campus in the Testing Center. Students must request the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send an official copy of the examination results to the Registrar.

Students wishing to receive credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) must obtain the permission of the appropriate Dean and the Vice President of Instruction prior to taking the test.

Rend Lake College will allow CLEP credit for scores of 50 or above as listed below.
