College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the CLEP Exams Accepted at KSU
Kennesaw State University only administers and accepts CLEP Subject Examinations listed on the link above. Examinees must be a currently registered student at Kennesaw State University in order to be tested at KSU. Students will not be permitted to take a CLEP exam or to receive credit by examination for a course in which the student is currently or was previously enrolled, unless the student withdrew from the course within the drop/add registration period.
All CLEP exams are computerized and are completed in one sitting. EXCEPT the CLEP Composition Modular exam. This exam requires two appointments. The first appointment consists of a 90-minute computerized multiple-choice exam. Upon passing this section the student will then make his/her second appointment along with another sitting fee of $22.00. The second appointment is a timed 90 minute typed essay (typed on the computer in Word).
Successful passage of a CLEP exam will be recorded as satisfied on the student's academic record by course title, course number, and semester credit hours earned. A course "grade" and "quality points" will not be recorded nor computed in the student's grade point average. CLEP credit does not count towards residency requirements. A maximum of 30-hours by examination is allowed at KSU.
A student may request to retake a CLEP Subject Exam, after a minimum of six months from the date of the previous exam date, by submitting a written request or sending an e-mail to Paula Almond at "firstname.lastname@example.org" , Director of Testing Services , Kennesaw State University, MB #00117, 1000 Chastain Rd, Kennesaw, GA, 30144.
