College-Level Examination Program

Students can earn credit through College-Level Examination Program examinations. CLEP exams are primarily used by incoming freshmen or sophomores; credit earned through these exams will reflect as lower-division transfer credit. While CLEP credits may be used to fulfill requirements, they will not increase the total counting toward graduation if you are already counting the maximum number of lower-division transfer credits allowed by your academic major (60 for a Psychology major). If you are a senior in your last 30 credits at FIU, you must discuss the transfer of CLEP credits with the department.

To schedule an appointment to take the CLEP or to ask further questions, please visit the Center for Testing and Career Certification.
