College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Since many state college students are adults without an opportunity to enter an Advanced Placement Program, but with broad and varied backgrounds, Indian River State College will consider results of the CLEP for credit by examination. 

CLEP was developed to provide a national program of examinations that can be used to evaluate non-traditional college level education, specifically including independent study and correspondence work. Information regarding CLEP Exams is available at www.collegeboard.com.

To assist members of the community in taking advantage of this opportunity, IRSC functions as an area test center. Application to take the examination can be made with the College Board by following these directions: http://www.irsc.edu/admissions/assessmentservices/assessmentservices.aspx?id=389#clep.

Official scores must be presented to IRSC to have the credit applied to the student’s academic record.
