College Level Examination Program (CLEP) examinations are offered in over 33 subject areas and cover material generally taught in introductory college level courses.  Students take CLEP exams to demonstrate their competency in a particular subject area in order to bypass a course. CLEP exams are computer-based, consisting mainly of multiple choice questions.  Scores are generated and provided at the completion of each exam, except for those with essays.  CLEP exams are provided to anyone, not just UVI students.
