Students can receive college credit by earning qualifying scores on one or more of the CLEP examinations UT accepts. More than 2,900 colleges and universities in the United States will recognize your comprehensive subject knowledge acquired through independent or prior study, cultural pursuits, special interests, internships or professional development. Each CLEP exam can earn three to six college credits (more for foreign languages).
The cost of each CLEP exam is $80, in addition to a $15 institutional fee, which is a fraction of the tuition for the corresponding course, payable to The University of Tampa. To take an exam, you must contact the Academic Center for Excellence to make an appointment in advance. You must also create an account at www.collegeboard.com/clep to register for the exam you wish to take and pay the $80 CLEP fee. When you come in for your testing appointment, you must bring your printed registration ticket you received when registering through the College Board, two forms of picture ID, as well as the $15 institutional fee payable by cash, check or money order. For more information about CLEP credits or to schedule an exam, please contact the Academic Center for Excellence at (813) 258-7251 or call ext. 7251 from a campus phone.
