2015-2016 College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The CLEP Subject Examinations are designed to assess achievement in specific college subjects. Each test contains various kinds of multiple-choice questions and allows 90 minutes to complete the items. For credit by examination in any English course, UT Arlington requires the optional CLEP Essay. Students who wish to have test scores evaluated for credit by examination in English must have their objective scores and essays sent to Testing Services (school code 6013). Testing Services will evaluate the objective scores and send eligible students' essays to English Department faculty for scoring. Additional requirements for eligibility are listed below. There is a three-month waiting period to repeat any CLEP examination.
CLEP Subject Examinations may be taken at any national testing center. Score reports are sent to your designated test center within one week after the test date. Other test centers, detailed descriptions of CLEP examinations, sample questions and suggested resources for preparation are available on The College Board website at www.collegeboard.com/clep. UT Arlington is an open CLEP test center administering CLEP exams to students and others in the DFW community. Examinees can only receive course credit at UT Arlington if they are an enrolled student and have completed a semester of course credit. For more credit by exam policies, please refer to the credit by exam policy link.
