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.  BW 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:
    a. 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.
    b. 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. Further information concerning the details of the various examinations, score requirements, and registration procedures is available in the Adult and Continuing Education office or the BW web site at http://www.bw.edu/clep.
