Hope accepts CLEP credit for the tests and scores listed below.
CLEP credit is granted based on the score received — see the table below for more details.
Please note CLEP language credit cannot be awarded for courses you have already completed. For example, if you have already completed Span 121, then take the Spanish CLEP and score 50, you will only be awarded 4 credits for Span 122. If you score 66, you will be given 12 credits for Span 122, 221 and 222.
The maximum amount of credit by exam awarded is 32 credit hours, 8 of which can go toward your major.
