About CLEP

The Lee College Testing Center is a certified testing center for the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). CLEP offers 34 standardized tests that measure a person's knowledge of the material covered in introductory-level college courses.

If you are unsure, it is highly recommended that you confirm your institution's CLEP testing policy before taking a CLEP exam.
