College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Earn college credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). CLEP is a national College Board credit by exam program available to Schoolcraft College students and members of the community. Students may choose from 35 CLEP exams offered monthly on selected dates. The CLEP computer-based test is a 90-minute timed multiple-choice exam.
