A successful score on the CLEP exams does not guarantee course credit. CLEP credit granting policies can vary from institution to institution, so students should investigate the CLEP credit granting policies of each receiving institution.
For CVCC students enrolled in the AA or AS programs, CLEP credit is not included under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) between NC Community Colleges and the University of North Carolina System. Any course credit granted toward these degrees from CLEP testing will nullify the articulation agreement and may affect your transfer standing at the receiving institution.
Prior to testing, students are highly advised to contact the receiving institution to discuss any impact that credit from CLEP testing may have for their situation.
