Question: Do CLEP Exams Count Towards GPA?

CLEP exams have no effect on your grade point average—all they do is allow you to receive course credit.

That means any passing grade on a CLEP test earns you the same amount of college credit—no matter if you get a “C” or an “A” on the exam.

Do CLEP exams affect GPA?

No. They do not affect your GPA. They are considered transfered credits and will only show completed status in your transcripts. I recommend going to CLEP official website to read more and also look up CLEP tips in YouTube.

Does Clep raise GPA?

CLEPS, if no grade is given, do not affect your GPA, unless you are using the CLEP to rid yourself of less than stellar grades, in which case they can help raise your overall GPA.

Can you get a degree with CLEP?

CLEP itself does not offer degrees – once you get to 120 credits, you’ll have to transfer them to an accredited college or university to be awarded a degree.

What happens if you fail a CLEP test?

If you score high enough to earn credit, you will receive credit with no grade. Pass or fail, CLEP credit is not figured into your grade point average (GPA). If you do not score high enough, nothing is logged on your college transcript indicating failure. The CLEP test is a computer-based exam.
