Testing Services CLEP

Students enrolled at Jacksonville State University may be awarded college credit on the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). The test scores are equated with specific courses in the current Jacksonville State University catalog.

Contact Counseling Services at 140 Daugette Hall to register for the CLEP. It is the student's responsibility to ascertain eligibility for possible award of CLEP credit.

A student is not eligible to receive CLEP credit for course(s):

  • if earned academic credit has been accepted by Jacksonville State University for that course.
  • if course attempted by CLEP has been previously attempted at collegiate institution
  • if those areas where earned academic credit for more advanced courses has been earned--resident transfer. If in doubt, consult with the Registrar's Office before you register for CLEP.
  • if the CLEP examination offers two semester credit and earned academic credit for one of the semesters has been accepted by Jacksonville State University.

Please refer to CLEPs policy on repeating exams. Also, please check with the Registrar's office.

Test results are evaluated by the Registrar's Office and recorded on a student's transcript if credit is awarded. Semester hours of credit toward graduation are awarded on the basis of CLEP tests but no grades or quality points are given. Therefore, CLEP credits will not affect grade point average (GPA).

Please refer to the most current JSU Course Catalog for recent updates on CLEP requirements.

Currently, in the 2017-2018 Catalog, it is on pages 29-32.
