The content of CLEP exams does not necessarily correspond to the content of the CCC course for which credit may be granted.
Jonathan, a junior ESS major, is learning the basics of athletics and exercise while gaining valuable life skills. "I am an exercise and sport science major with a pre-physical therapy emphasis. One of the things I like about CCC, and specifically my major here, is the fact that I have the opportunity to gain many valuable hands-on experiences through different classes and activities, such as covering sporting events as a student athletic trainer. At CCC I am able to gain an excellent education while still learning about Christ and keeping Him the focus."

CCC Policies for Awarding CLEP Credits


Each college develops their policies for awarding credit through examination. The key components of our policy are
  • Credit consideration is based on an examination of official CLEP results provided by the College Board.
  • The College accepts a maximum of 24 semester hours of credit through CLEP, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate program.
  • No CLEP credits will be awarded once the student has earned 60 hours toward their program of study.
  • Scores from CLEP General and Subject area tests in English and Freshman Composition must be received prior to the student's initial course registration.
  • The College will award college credit based on whether test results coordinate with course found in the College's curriculum.
  • CLEP credit awarded for transfer students will be based on CLEP score results and not credit posted on a college transcript.
  • Awarded credit is based on minimum score requirements set by the Registrar's office.
