College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Board offers nationally standardized CLEP exams that may allow learners to earn college credit for knowledge aquired through on-the-job training, professional development, etc. CLEP exams are offered at the Sinclair Miami Valley Research Park location and other sites across the nation.  When you take a CLEP exam, request your scores be sent to Sinclair Community College (code 1720).
