Transfer Credit Through College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

SCF will allow credit for satisfactory scores earned in the comprehensive and subject examinations offered by the College Entrance Examination Board. SCF will award credit hours through CLEP based on presentation of test scores. The student must score at or above the 50th percentile of the national norms unless otherwise noted.
