The College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
 an activity of the College Board, makes examinations available through which a student may receive credit toward the bachelor's degree. Two types of examinations are offered: General Examinations (Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences) and a number of subject examinations ranging from American Government through Western Civilization. Baldwin Wallace University requires a passing CLEP score of at least 50. Baldwin Wallace University is a CLEP Test Center.

The faculty of the University recognizes the merits of CLEP and is prepared to make the following awards to those students who qualify:

  1. In order to qualify for credit in any of the examinations offered in CLEP, the student must meet each of the following requirements:
    1. The student may not receive credit for a general examination if he/she has already earned  University credit in more than one discipline covered by the appropriate General Examination.
    2. The student may not receive credit for a subject examination that covers the same subject area  in which the student has already earned University credit.
  2. Credits awarded from the CLEP program are considered transfer credit.
  3. Find out more details from the CLEP program, including examinations, score requirements and registration procedures.
