CLEP exams are offered through the SEU Testing Center. You do not have to be a Southeastern University student to utilize our Testing Center. Contact the SEU Testing Center (testing@seu.edu) to schedule an appointment to take a CLEP exam.  All SEU degree-seeking students must complete an eligibility form before an appointment can be scheduled. The form will be reviewed to determine if the degree-seeking student meets SEU guidelines for awarding CLEP credit. These guidelines are listed below. One form per CLEP exam must be completed.

 SEU Guidelines for Awarding CLEP Credit

  • CLEP credit can be transferred to an Associate’s degree or a Bachelor’s degree.
  • CLEP credit can not be transferred to an academic record belonging to a non-degree-seeking student.
  • Official CLEP scores must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar before the student’s 90th hour of earned credit for evaluation.
  • To receive credit, a minimum scaled score at or above an established national percentile must be earned on each area tested. Details are available at www.collegeboard.com.
  • To receive credit for a qualified CLEP test, a degree-seeking student must not be currently enrolled in, have completed, or earned a “W” in an equivalent or more advanced college course.
  • CLEP credits combined with AP, IB, AICE, PLA, and military credit cannot exceed 45 college credits.
