College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

For these examinations, which are administered by the College Entrance Examination Board, Illinois Institute of Technology will award credit under the following conditions:

  • The CLEP examination and the score achieved meet the standards of the university department that offers courses in the area of the examination.
  • The CLEP examination is not allowed for courses in which the student has previously enrolled and must be completed before a student’s final 45 credit hours of enrollment at the university.
  • Students must observe all rules of the College Level Examination Program regarding the taking of CLEP examinations.

Note: Previous acceptance of the examination by another institution does not imply acceptance by Illinois Institute of Technology. If you are a current IIT student and plan to take a CLEP exam, you must first receive approval from UGAA.
