Testing Information

 

CLEP & DANTES

The CLEP and DANTES examination programs give traditional and nontraditional students the opportunity to earn transfer credit. In general, each college or university establishes its own policy for awarding this special transfer credit, so it is important to know the school's policy prior to taking one of these exams. IUPUI's policy has been approved by our academic departments and is limited to the examinations listed in a brochure provided by the Office of Admissions. These exams are periodically revised and reviewed, and it is the student's responsibility to obtain the most recent policy statement on the DANTES and CLEP from the Office of Admissions

 College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

CLEP is one of the ways a student may earn college credit by examination rather than by actually enrolling in the courses. CLEP now serves both traditional and nontraditional students who wish to obtain college credit for knowledge gained in other ways. CLEP exams are given at the Testing Center Tuesday through Saturday 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM, except for Holidays. You can call the Testing Center at 274-2620 to schedule or use the application on our website. You will be notified by e-mail of the date and time of your testing. If you are unable to attend when scheduled, you must call or e-mail with the date for which you wish to reschedule. Educational Testing Services (ETS) will mail you a copy of your results approximately three weeks after testing is completed. A copy will also be sent to the Admissions Office.
