A. At a time when the national student loan debt has surpassed $1 trillion, the CLEP® (College Level Examination Program) — developed by the makers of AP® and the SAT® — can help lessen the burden of college loans. By getting qualifying scores in any of the 33 CLEP exams, your child can take advantage of these benefits:
- Save money. $80 is a fraction of the cost of college tuition, fees, and books.
- Earn college credit. Passing any of the 33 exams can earn your child up to 12 college credits.
- Accelerate and graduate. Your child can advance to upper-level courses relevant to his or her major.
