INFORMATION ABOUT COLLEGE LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP)
Colleges and universities differ in the policies on scores accepted and credits awarded on every CLEP exam. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure their CLEP score will be accepted by the college or university they wish to attend.
If transferring from Butler to a 4 year college or university, it is the student’s responsibility to contact a counselor/advisor at that institution prior to taking an exam to determine their CLEP requirements and acceptance of scores and credits. That institution will apply its own policy to your original scaled score rather than transferring the credit Butler has granted.
TO RECEIVE CLEP CREDIT FROM BUTLER
A student must score at least the minimum level on any given test as established by Butler’s English and
Mathematics Departments. CLEP exam scores will be posted as a “CR” on a student’s transcript. The Butler
Registrar grants college credit subject to approval from the appropriate dean for the College Level Examination
Program (CLEP) examinations on the following basis:
When a student presents a score representing the 50th percentile in one or more of the examinations, credit is
recorded on the student’s transcript in the area in which the score was attained. A maximum of 30 hours of CLEP
may be applied toward graduation.
Note: Important Information and Exclusions
CLEP exams alone do not fulfill all degree requirements; students must complete 15 credit hours in residence at
Butler. CLEP exams in science do not fulfill the laboratory science requirement for an associate degree. Butler does
not offer departmental exams for credit. Butler does not allow CLEP credit for English Composition II or Speech. Any questions
regarding credit by examination should be addressed to the Registrars or the Advising Offices. Note:
Nursing Students wishing to CLEP any of the seven prerequisite courses may do so; however, since credit
hours are issued without grades for a CLEP exam, and since entrance into the program is based on the combined
grades of the seven prerequisite courses, the CLEP course is considered equivalent to a grade of C which will be
reflected in the final GPA computation.
