College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) Credit

The department encourages students to earn Bradley credit by participating in the College-
Level Examination Program (CLEP). This program, developed by the College Board,
tests mastery of college-level material acquired through academic or independent study
or extracurricular work. Not only will CLEP credit count toward the hours needed for
graduation at Bradley, it will help insure that students are placed at the appropriate level in
the University’s curricula. Furthermore, by completing University requirements via CLEP
credit, students have the option to pursue additional course work within the department’s
offerings without incurring semester overloads.
