CLEP

Accepted CLEP Examinations

If you are an SXU student, you cannot receive credit for a CLEP exam if you are currently enrolled in that course or have already taken (or transferred in) its equivalent course. Additionally, you may not use CLEP to replace a failing grade or to repeat a class you dropped and received a W or W7 in.
