Standardized Examinations of College-Level Learning: CLEP,DANTES, and Excelsior

Wilkes University awards academic credit on the basis of satisfactory performance on the Subject Examinations, not the General Examinations, of the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. CLEP scores are evaluated according to the guidelines provided by the American Council on Education (ACE), and credits awarded will be applied to the degree program as appropriate. Although the program is designed primarily for adults, exceptionally well-qualified high school seniors may find it advantageous to seek academic credit through the College-Level Examination Program. Inquiries about CLEP should be directed to the Office of Admissions by calling (570) 408-4400. Official scores on CLEP Subject Examination scores should be forwarded directly to the Office of Admissions.

Scores earned on other standardized examinations, specifically DANTES and Excelsior, are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Additional information about CLEP, DANTES, and Excelsior examinations is available in the Office of Prior Learning Assessment.
