CLEP EXAM EQUIVALENCIES

Effective 1/1/14

Students are eligible to receive credit for CLEP (College Level Examination Program) exams upon application to a UAA Certificate, Associate, or Bachelors level degree program. Students pursuing an Occupational Endorsement Certificate are not eligible. Please verify your admission status before ordering transcripts.

Satisfactory minimum scores are based on recommendations and evaluations from both The American Council on Education and academic departments at UAA. Credit for exams will be elective credit or, through agreements with departments, will be equated to UAA courses.

The UAA course equivalency for each CLEP exam is subject to change.

To order a CLEP Exam score report, visit http://clep.collegeboard.org/about/score

Your score report should be sent to:

UAA Enrollment Services
PO Box 141629
Anchorage, AK 99514-1629

If you took a paper-based version of your CLEP exam, do not see you CLEP exam listed, or took your exam prior to 2009, please contact the Transfer Credit team at transfer@uaa.alaska.edu. Scores and equivalencies for older exams, as well as exams that are no longer offered by CLEP, are available upon request.
