College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Carroll awards credits for CLEP exam performance.

To earn college credit for CLEP performance, you must receive a qualifying score of 50 or higher on the computerized CLEP exam and submit official score reports from the College Board to Carroll.

Request your official scores be sent to Carroll at the time of testing or visit the The College Board to download a request form after you test. While CLEP credits are accepted, Carroll is not a CLEP test site.
