CLEP (College Level Examination Program)
CLEP is a series of individual tests for various college-level courses. Each test provides an opportunity to gain college credit for knowledge acquired through independent study. CLEP testing is open to the general public.
For CLEP exam guides and more information on CLEP tests, visit the College Board website.
New Incoming PC Students
Students who have not taken the ACT for admission to Presentation College may take the ACT Residual Test on campus for a fee. Please note, residual ACT Score Reports cannot be transferred to another school.
All incoming PC students are required to take either the COMPASS or ACCUPLACER placement tests, unless determined exempt. Scores from these tests are used to place students in the appropriate level of math and/or English courses. Minimum Scores (pdf) on the placement tests must be achieved in order to register for classes. Presentation College offers each test, one time, at no charge to incoming PC students.
Students requesting to take one of the placement tests for another college may do so by scheduling an appointment with the Career and Learning Center.
Students are administered the Elementary Algebra, Reading Comprehension, and Sentence Skills tests.
Students are responsible for making an appointment in the Career and Learning Center by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Proctoring hours are available 7:30am-5:00pm Monday-Friday. Students must report to the CLC at the time scheduled to take their test.
The instructor will provide the test information to the CLC, including the dates the test is available, length of the test, and if any materials are allowed. The CLC will not proctor a test outside the test availability time unless permission is granted from the instructor.
The CLC will administer make-up tests and proctored exams for students who are unable to take a scheduled classroom test for one of the following reasons:
- A personal, family, work, or medical emergency
- Missing a test due to a college sponsored academic or athletic event
- A documented disability identified by the Disability Services Coordinator
Only Presentation College faculty members can authorize a make-up test. Students must speak with their instructor before scheduling an exam in the CLC. The instructor will provide the test information to the CLC, including the dates the test is available, length of the test, and if any materials are allowed.
Proctoring for Non-PC Students
The CLC will proctor tests for a limited number of non-PC students for a charge of $20 per test.
An individual requesting ADA accommodations must have the ADA Coordinator of the institution forward accommodation recommendations to the CLC in advance of the test.
