Advising and Registration:

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Peirce College reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to allow any student who has passed a general or subject CLEP examination in a subject applicable to his/her program to apply the credits toward a degree at Peirce. These credits will be handled in the same manner as transfer credits. Students must consult with their academic advisor to review general and subject examinations and the transferability of credits. Transfer credits do not impact a student's grade point average.

Peirce College will use the American Council on Education's (ACE) recommended credit-granting score to determine eligibility for awarding credits for CLEP exams. Official documentation must be submitted early in the degree program to avoid duplication of course work. It is in the student's best interest to submit documentation during the student's first 14-week period at Peirce College.

Peirce College is not a CLEP testing site; however, students may obtain information about local testing sites by contacting the College Board at 1-800-257-9558 or visiting the College Board's website.
